No more elephants at Chicago zoos

September 24, 2010 (BROOKFIELD, Ill) The African elephant had been alone at Brookfield since the last elephant died. Zoo officials said the animals are social creatures, so she was returned to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom to be with other elephants.

Lincoln Park Zoo does not have any elephants either.

It's the first time since 1889 that neither Chicago zoo has had elephants.
