|Saba came to Zoo Le Pal in 1973, and was kept as single elephant until 1996, when she was joined by the asian elephant Accra from Circus Krone in Munich. |
In 2005 a new elephant facilty was built in Le Pal, and the two elephants was transfered tp protected contact. They were also joined by a breeding group from Paris Zoo, but Saba, who had been alone elephant for many years, had difficulties to adapt to the newcomers, there was a lot of fights between the elephants and she missed the contact with humans.
In 2007 it was decided to bring her to Kolmarden Zoo in Sweden, where the two asian elephants belonging to the swedish king are worked in free contact.
She was transfered at 7th of November, and was traight away worked hands on in free contact. She is now happier, and gets a lot of attention and care.
