Belfast Zoo Looking for "Elephant Angel" from World War II

I saw this article today.....the Belfast Zoo (as in Ireland) is looking for a lady who volunteered to watch a baby elephant in her backyard during World War II. The zoo was protecting against bombings, they even had to euthanize some animals because it would be too dangerous if they escaped after a bombing.

Do you know this lady or have any clues? Let the Belfast Zoo know....


  1. Wow! How would it be to look after a baby elephant? People often don't think about the repercussions of war and what happens to the animals. Interesting!

  2. I'd love to take care of a baby elephant!!
