2010-12-27 - San Diego, California, United States. Imperial Valley News

In the dark, early hours of Monday morning, an African elephant calf was born at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.

The San Diego Zoo ushered in Valentine’s Day with a bundle of joy that’s not so little. A male African elephant was born about 2 a.m. Sunday at the zoo’s Wild Animal Park. He and his mother Ndlula are reportedly doing well. Visitors camping overnight at the zoo could hear the herd trumpeting in the early morning -- a common behavior when a calf is born, according to the Associated Press.

Secrecy shrouds San Diego elephants move

Reporting from San Diego -- Ranchipur, the bull, is ready. Cookie and Mary are getting there. Cha Cha, well, she's always been the idiosyncratic one, the youngest and a bit flighty. Soon, Ranchipur and the three females -- Asian elephants all -- will transfer from the San Diego Zoo's Wild Animal Park to the zoo itself. The exact day and time of the move is a closely held secret. The four will be stars in the zoo's largest and most expensive exhibit: the $45-million Harry and Grace Steele Elephan...

Dangerous Elephant To Get Bigger Quarters

1982-11-25 - San Diego, California, United States.

Cindy, an elephant with a reputation as a dangerous animal after staying 17 years alone in cramped quarters, will be able to roam free, play in the dirt and take a dip in a pool at a new home here in the San Diego Wild Animal Park. The elephant keeper at the park says the new quarters will provide enough distraction so Cindy will lose interest in using people as toys. The elephant, 19 years old, will move here from Point Defiance Zoo, Tacoma, Wash. She had been called ''possibly the most dangero...
