Comments / picturesElephants 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 a keeper was crushed to death by an Indian bull 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
