Last year, the Woodland Park Zoo transferred its two elephants to the zoo in Oklahoma City, where they joined the existing herd. Although officials were optimistic that Bamboo and Chai (two female elephants) would integrate well, the transition has been pretty tragic.

Going Around Green Lake: Which Way is the Right Way?
