Port Lympne Zoo in United Kingdom
Port Lympne Zoo, located at Lympne Nr. Hythe, in Kent,
, was founded in 1973. Comments / pictures
Elephants were now and then transfered between Port Lympne and Howletts.
The parks have been dogged by controversy after five zookeepers were killed in 20 years, three of them mauled to death by tigers.
In 1984 elephant keeper Mark Aitken
was crushed to death by the Indian bull Bindu elephant in Port Lympne. The most recent victim was Darren Cockrill,
27, who was crushed by elephant La Petite in its enclosure at Port Lympne in February 2000
The bull Bindu has had many offspring including twins with Yasmin (still born), also still born calves with Rani and Pugli and also mated Divida who died after a ceasarion. Bindu is also the father of Puglis third calf Ashoka who was born on the 20th of August 1998. Pugli rejected him and he is being hand-reared by keepers. Formerly we had a bull Assam, born in Hannover, Germany 1971, who produced a calf out of Pugli but she killed it immediatly after birth. Assam died 1994 whilst under sedation.
