Together with another elephant from Blijdorp zoo, both the animals were transported to Nuenen zoo near Eindhoven.
To lift the elephants out of their accommodation Wagenborg Nedlift was involved. The elephants were placed in containers especially made for this purpose.
A 130 ton mobile crane lifted the elephants, weighing almost 2500 kilo’s, right across the tiger cage at a height of 25 meters and placed the containers on the trailer standing at the ready.
At a different location within Emmen zoo, a 55 ton Demag placed the container on a flatbed trailer taking the animals to their new accommodation in Nuenen.
