Vintage Woodland Park Zoo--Bamboo Revisted 1967

Baby Elephant Frisks A Zoo Visitor 

While innocently searching for a peanut or some other goodie, Bamboo, the Woodland baby elephant, alienated a potential patron yesterday. Victor Rosellini, left, restaurateur, had just presented a $500 check to Gil Chandler, president of the Seattle Zoological Society, when Bamboo "frisked" the unidentified boy. Rosellini; Chandler, holding the check, and Barbara Berry, the elephant's handler, watched the byplay in amusement. The check is the first major contribution toward a $20,000 home and pool for baby elephants at the children's Zoo. The society bought Bamboo from Miss Berry's father, Morgan Berry, who owns an animal farm near Woodland, Cowlitz County.
