The most famous elephant of the Royal Melbourne Zoological Park, Queenie, arrived in 1902 and gave rides for more than forty years until she killed a keeper in 1944 (possibly by accident). The following year she was put down by zoo management due to a food shortage stemming from World War II. In 1962, the zoo discontinued elephant rides.

Her story is recounted in Corinne Fentons 2006 childrens book "Queenie: One Elephants Story."
