Trumpeting her new digs: Los Angeles Zoo debuts new elephant from Fresno

July 6, 2017

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Visitors are getting their first glimpses of Shaunzi, the Los Angeles Zoo's newest elephant.


The 46-year-old Asian female elephant came to LA from Fresno after her longtime companion died.

Shaunzi, who was born in Thailand and spent years in a circus, was introduced to the public Thursday in the Elephants of Asia exhibit.


The pachyderm was trucked 215 miles from Fresno Chaffee Zoo in a special crate last month.
