The Oregon Zoo has announced the name of the baby elephant: Lily. The name received nearly 60-percent of the 50-thousand votes made by the public. Zoo Director Kim Smith says elephant herds are matriarchal; a female leading the group.  And Lily, with her go-getter personality might be just like her mom, Rose-Tu.  Zoo staff suggested five names. Voting took place on-line over the last week. We have video of the baby elephant's first trip outside at: www.oregonzoo.org.
