Excerpt

Like all wild elephant females, Toka and Iringa would have stayed with their mother and family group their whole life. Their male brothers would eventually leave to create their own groups and find other females. But Toka and Iringa were captured and brought to a zoo in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Thika was born at the zoo nearly ten years after they arrived. She never lived in the wild.
