Lily the Elephant Can Stay


Lily the baby elephant now officially belongs to the Oregon Zoo. In an agreement penned Friday, Zoo Director Kim Smith says the zoo voided its loan contract with the controversial company "Have Trunk will travel", and took ownership of Lily and her father, Tusko.  News that lily wasn't owned by the zoo made headlines when she was born in December.  Now, she will stay, as will any other siblings fathered by Tusko.  The zoo  paid 400-thousand dollars for both elephants. The money came entirely from funds raised by the private, nonprofit Oregon Zoo Foundation.
