NEW YORK — Happy the Asian elephant has lived at the Bronx Zoo for more than 40 years.

She’s 47 years old and has lived alone since 2006, separated from the zoo’s two other elephants ever since a fight led to bad blood.

So is Happy happy? It depends on whom you ask.

The zoo has said many times that Happy is quite content. But an animal rights group has described the situation quite differently, saying that the elephant is being unlawfully imprisoned. So it’s suing the zoo to set Happy free.

DENVER (AP) – The Denver Zoo has added two male Asian elephants to its pachyderm bachelor pad.

The Denver Post reports elephants Chuck and Jake are joining the current residents of Groucho, Bodhi and Billy, who are part of the ongoing effort to protect and save the endangered species.

Brian Aucone, the zoo’s senior vice president for animal sciences, says the Denver Zoo is equipped to “support the Asian elephant population in North American zoos,” aiming to become “a worldwide leader in the care of male Asian elephants.”
