The Los Angeles Zoo purchased two female African elephants, McClean and Sage, together from Jurgen Schulz in November 1977. They resided together, along with other elephants of both species, in the Los Angeles Zoo elephant exhibit until the death of Sage in May 1984 and McClean in March 1986.

McClean died of injuries sustained after she was knocked into the exhibit's surrounding Moat by Tara.
