Woodland Park Zoo’s elephants, Chai and Bamboo, have arrived at their new home in Oklahoma City, after being diverted to San Diego last month.
KING 5 had a crew on scene when the elephants’ caravan arrived about 3 a.m. at the Oklahoma City Zoo.
The elephants left Seattle after a years-long fight with animal activists over the elephants’ well being. Activists fought for the elephants to be moved to a sanctuary instead of another zoo. The elephants left for Oklahoma City hours after a judge gave the okay, but the caravan was diverted to San Diego due to severe weather.
