|The Topeka Zoo's two elephants Sunda and Tembo have been in protected contact since 1996. They have been together since Tembo's arrival in 1976. Topeka Zoo is one of the few facilities in North America to still have cohabitating species kept together.|
2018-03-13; "Last Monday, Sunda started blowing a discharge from her trunk," said Zoo Director Brendan Wiley. "Sunday morning, the illness took a turn for the worse. She became very lethargic; almost unresponsive. She was very pale. By early afternoon on Sunday, she began to stabilize."
2018-09-12: Monday was the first day she couldn't stand on her own, she couldn’t stand up on her own, the zoo says. The Topeka Fire Department used straps, pulleys, and ropes to lift her to her feet.
