In June 2000, the Ringling Brothers Circus donated 25 year old Babe to the Niabi Zoo as a companion animal for the zoo's lone resident elephant since 1965, Kathy Sh-Boom. Babe was named in a city-wide contest with the last name Sh-Bang.
In November 2002, Kathy Sh-Boom was the oldest known captive elephant to have died from the Elephant Endotheliotropic Herpes virus, 30 months after Babe's arrival at the age of 40. After Kathy's death, Ringling donated another elephant to Niabi Zoo in March 2003, Sophie. Niabi Director Tom Stalf said it is assumed Kathy contracted the disease from Babe. Both Sophie and Babe were both later tested positive as carriers for the disease.
