Berlin elephants enjoy late festive snack: Christmas trees

2016-01-08 - Berlin, Germany

Zoo elephants in Berlin have enjoyed a light festive snack: a late delivery of Christmas trees. The New Year feeding of unsold pine trees has become an annual event. Zookeeper Mario Hammerschmidt says the trees are certified as pesticide-free. Hammerschmidt said Thursday that the trees are "a good supplement to the food the elephants get during winter time."

Berlin zoo elephant baby is actually a boy

2016-01-04 - Berlin, Germany

Zoo workers in Berlin admitted on Monday that they had made a mistake about the sex of the newest member of their elephant herd. It´s easier than one might think with elephants, as pachyderms´ male member is discreetly hidden away in a pouch unless they are urinating or otherwise making use of it.

Udo Wedekind on the elephant hunt in Botswana.

Elephant hunter becomes agriculture boss

2014-02-05 - Erfurt, Germany

A German conservation official who caused uproar after he boasted about shooting an elephant in Botswana has been made president of a state agricultural institute rather than being sacked. Elephant hunting was, when Wedekind fired his shots, allowed to an extent in Botswana. The country banned it at the beginning of 2014. Wedekind will be the head of Thuringia´s Institute for Agriculture, the environmental ministry confirmed.

Trunk and Disorderly

2012-10-23 - Burladingen, Germany

A circus elephant which smashed a 12-year-old boy´s jaw with its trunk is being investigated by safety and wildlife officials in Germany. But just two years ago the same elephant crushed a family against a wall, leaving the 24-year-old dad critically injured and breaking his nine-month-old son´s leg. In 2000, the tusker was also accused of attacking a mum and her six year old child with her trunk.

Really wild show! Elephants hula with their trunks, dance on logs and even line up for a conga

2012-09-16 - Hannover, Germany

These clever elephants were wowing visitors at a German zoo earlier this week as they put on a stellar dancing performance for the crowds. The group, consisting of both calves and adult beasts, performed on tree logs, played with hula-hoops and even got up to do the conga. The elephants may not make the cut for Strictly Come Dancing, but showed off some remarkable trunk-foot coordination.

BBC Radio Broadcast tonight: This New Strange World - Pia the elephant

2012-08-30 - Berlin, Germany

Indian elephant called Pia who was brought over to East Berlin to perform in the GDR State Circus, I knew I´d found that strange kernel of truth from which a story could blossom. Imagining the contrasts was what intrigued me - I could picture this elephant´s journey from the wilds of India to communist Germany, and the disparity she found to encounter the sequined-sparkle and magic of circus life so totally incongruous with the grey bleakness of East Berlin.

Munich baby elephant dies

2012-01-22 - Munich, Germany

A three-month old elephant at a zoo in Munich died on Saturday of a pulmonary embolism, just before she was due to receive a heart surgery for a congenital defect. The elephant was taken to the Grosshadern Hospital for a CT scan, so that vets could take a closer look at her heart before operating. She was anaesthetized, but died during the scan, despite attempts to resuscitate her.
