Two female elephants obtained by Prague Zoo from the government of Sri Lanka, are Prague-bound, loaded onto a military Hercules plane for a roughly 17-hour flight. The animals, reportedly calm, are being attended to by zoo specialists. The elephants were loaded into special transport facilities at 9 pm local time in Pinnawala, and were driven to Colombo, where they were loaded onto the plane. Their arrival in the Sri Lankan capital was awaited by local politicians and journalists, ČTK says.
