Comments / pictures

Arrived Denmark with two czech artists without papers in 1980, why the elephant was confiscated and brought to Copenhagen Zoo. The owner were allowed to take daily care for the elephant, and one night, the elephant disappeared without any trace from the Zoo. The artists took the route to Poland over Sweden and Trelleborg harbour, and later wrote to Copenhagen Zoo director Bent Jörgenssen and apalogized for any obstacles and thanked for the care of the elephant.
