Chico The Elephant Dies At Caldwell Zoo
Bummer! Sad news today, Chico the elephant has died. If you've ever been to the Caldwell Zoo, Chico was that massive African elephant that seemed to dominate the rest of the herd! My son and I went to the zoo last Summer and found they had one of the paths closed off because he was near the fence. They had a sign saying they would do this from time to time for safety reasons. Chico was like 46 years old in human years - I'm not sure how to convert it into elephant years! He was the oldest living African bull in any Northern American zoo. He actually died last Saturday but they had to wait for the autopsy results to make the announcement. I love the Caldwell Zoo and we're so lucky to have it here in East Texas. This makes me want to go for a visit with my kids again! Have a great weekend!
