Twenty-two elephants Cakutla arrived by plane in Naples Cakutla Twenty-two elephants arrived by plane in Naples Naples on Monday morning. (a. I.) A plane with an unusual cargo arrived yesterday from Calcutta airport of Capodichino. The aircraft carried twenty-two elephants, fourteen of which were landed and taken up on special vehicles, that there were transported to the zoo Fuorigrotta. The other eight elephants have continued the journey to Germany. Many Neapolitans, driven by the curiosity of seing Chinese elephants, have flocked to the area of Capodichino and the other roads crossed from animals to the zoo. Director of the Naples Zoo, Dr. Cuneo said: "Not all of the fourteen elephants remain in Naples. Some of them are destined for zoos Milan and Turin. They were disembarked at Naples "to get them used to our climate, in the hope that they do not contract a cold."
