Bunny brought joy to all who knew her… from her first four decades at the zoo in Evansville, IN, to the many thousands who were introduced to her nearly ten years ago when she arrived at The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee to begin her retirement. On that day, for the first time since infancy, Bunny met other Asian elephants and discovered she had the freedom to roam hundreds of acres. Bunny’s first few days were underscored by constant, cheerful trumpeting, indicating she was more than pleased with her new home and friends! On May 14, 2009, at the age of 57, our “Outdoor Girl” Bunny peacefully passed away from natural causes due to old age. Namaste, Sweet Bunny.
