Emma was purchased by the Toledo Zoo in March 1973 and resided for nine years, there known as Wally. She was traded back to the International Animal Exchange for two young African elephants, Tembo and Renee, in June 1982. She was later purchased by Bobby Moore and sold later to the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus.
