George Munro, in Bremen,
, was founded in 1947 and the first elephant arrived in 1948. Comments / picturesMunro had an office in India at 86 Ripon Street, Calcutta, and also started and owned Bremer Tierpark 1967-1974.
Possible table of imports:
Transport 1: Sura, sold to Rostock, and another female. The other female may be Nika, going to Stockholm over Hamburg.
Schöpfi, Hati to Rostock, Sonja
to Magdeburg. Schöpfis import is described in the book Mit Elefanten unterwegs (by Gotthard Berger), which says she was captured in Assam, India, in 1960, and shipped together with three other elephants from Calcutta in India to Bremerhafen
in Germany. It seems that the other three was Joni, Hathi and Sonja.
According to EPP, Joni was sold to Berlin Tierpark,
