The zoos founder, Cor Ouwehand, had moved from Rotterdam to Rhenen to start a cigar factory, but changed his mind and started a chicken farm on the Grebbeberg in 1919, where he held a number of other animals as well, including raccoons, peacocks, and pheasants, quickly drawing public interest.

1932: Ouwehands Dierenpark opened

1995: Asian Elephants get a new enclosure.(Wikipedia)

The three elephants of Ouwehands Dierenpark in Rhenen are managed in protected contact with target training. Aja had previously killed a keeper”. (Jos Breukers)
