One of the elephants at our local zoo became pregnant in 2004. She had a healthy pregnancy, and I was looking forward to a summer’s worth of baby elephant pictures in their new enclosure. GennyC and the zoo invested a great deal of effort and hope in this pregnancy. GennyC’s calf was still-born last week. I feel sorry for the loss, both for GennyC, and the zoo.
This is a pic I took of Lilac last winter.
