    It's not easy being a pudgy pachyderm

    Officials at the Alaska Zoo say their elephant, Maggie, "could stand to lose a couple of hundred pounds." The question is how to make that happen. Everyone's been weighing in, from the US Department of Agriculture to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

    But the zoo in Anchorage has come up with a plan. They're going to install the world's first elephant treadmill.

    It's being made by an engineering firm in Boise, Idaho. Conveyor Engineering designs the heavy-duty conveyor systems used in mining. No one knows how well it will work for Maggie, but a company vice president says "it seems like a good idea to get a sedentary animal moving."
