2005-01-31 - Oakland, United States.

It was a cold 8 a.m. at the Oakland Zoo's elephant compound, but 36- year-old M'Dunda was enjoying a warm-water bath. Her feet got special treatment, as if she were a matron at a Napa Valley spa.

A keeper cleaned them gently with a scrub brush and used an X-Acto knife to gingerly search for sticks and rocks, as M'Dunda was hand-fed fruit chunks while she stood in a restraint chute.

"Keeping elephants in captivity is incredibly labor-intensive," said general curato...
