Toronto elephants expected at new California home tonight
The three elephants who until this week lived at the Toronto Zoo home are closing in on their new northern Californian home.
A convoy including Thika, Toka and Iringa left the zoo at 10:30pm Thursday, bound for the PAWS animal sanctuary in San Andreas, CA.
They're expected to arrive at their new home on Sunday night.
The animals have been travelling inside giant crates loaded onto the back of two flatbed trucks.
A team from PAWS travelling with the pachyderms says they've been handling the trip well. Along the way, Thika, the youngest of the elephants celebrated her 33rd birthday.
