In the dark, early hours of Monday morning, an African elephant calf was born at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.

Soon, Ranchipur and the three females -- Asian elephants all -- will transfer from the San Diego Zoo's Wild Animal Park to the zoo itself. The exact day and time of the move is a closely held secret.

Dangerous Elephant To Get Bigger Quarters

1982-11-25 - San Diego, California, United States.

Cindy, an elephant with a reputation as a dangerous animal after staying 17 years alone in cramped quarters, will be able to roam free, play in the dirt and take a dip in a pool at a new home here in the San Diego Wild Animal Park.

The elephant, 19 years old, will move here from Point Defiance Zoo, Tacoma, Wash. She had been called ''possibly the most dangero...
