She was born in Thailand, coming to the states in 1959 as a member of the King Brothers circus. She remained with the circus until 1984, at which time she retired to the zoo here. They say she was social with the other two elephants and gentle with her keepers, who read her "get well" letters every morning. She was 52 years old and a beautiful soul, who will be missed by everyone in our community. *sniffle*
--My thoughts and prayers are with those in the Philippines affected by the horrible devastation that's going on right now!
On a more upbeat note, I would like to wish my friend 0xnatashax0 a very Happy Birthday! I hope you have a wonderful day surrounded by your friends & family. *hugs*
