The Oregon Zoo doesn't own the baby elephant that was born last week, but it will stay at the zoo.  According to a contract with the company that owns the father, "Have Trunk Will Travel," gets rights to the second, fourth and sixth calves that are sired by "Tusko."  Zoo Director Kim Smith says that doesn't mean the baby will leave the zoo.  The questions arose, because it's not written in the contract that the elephant stays in Portland.  Smith says they're in negotiations with the company to keep the elephant here.
