Woodland Park Zoo--2012

A demolition crew uses an excavator to begin tearing down the Woodland Park Zoo's old elephant barn yesterday. The 65-year-old facility, originally constructed to house only two elephants, was rundown, cold and drafty, according to Zoo officials. The Zoo's four elephants now live in their new home - a $6 million Elephant Forest. The 4.6 acre exhibit includes a one-acre elephant clearing, a large outdoor pool where the elephants can bathe, and the 50-foot high House of Elephants, which is more than double the size of the house being demolished.
