Circus Finlandia, located at Askersintie 10, in Mustio, Finland.
At the very beginning of the 80's, Circus Finland bought two elephants, Vanni and Buli, from a bankrupt circus in Germany, both were in very poor condition. Buli died fairly soon after coming to Finland. Vanni was an African elephant and had a great career in Circus Finland. There is no exact certainty as to the origin of the both, but according to unofficial data, Vanni was wild born in 1973 and lived in Yugoslavia in the 1970s.
1986, the use of circus elephants was banned in Finland, and Vanni was relocated to Zoolandia in Lieto.
