The chimpanzee and the exotic birds disappeared. One giraffe was shot to death. The seals escaped, though it is not clear to where. Camels, llamas and deer wandered along the banks of the Vistula R...

Krakow Zoo asks Indian steel firm for new elephant

2006-08-04 - WARSAW, Poland

A Polish city has appealed to Indian industrial giant Mittal Steel to find a new elephant for its zoo after its previous Indian elephant died. Though Burma, a 40-year-old crowd-puller, died in July, trade restrictions on zoo elephants and long waiting lists mean it can take years for zoos to find replacements. "Everyone in the city is waiting for a new elephant, especially the children," said Krystina Paluchowska, a spokesperson at Krakow city hall.
"It could take a long ti...
