Woodland Park Zoo elephants arrive in Oklahoma City

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.
