Elephants and guests celebrate four good years

HSH Princess Stephanie held a party on July 13 in Fonbonne to celebrate the fourth anniversary of her much-publicised adoption of the elephants Baby and Nepal, which were due to be euthanised in 2012 over suspected tuberculosis.

Some 11,000 people had signed a petition to spare the elephants and film-star-turned-animal-rights campaigner Brigitte Bardot threatened to move to Russia if they were put down. A stay of execution was granted.

Princess Stephanie rescued Baby and Nepal, ages 42 and 43, from the Zoo Tete d’Or (Lyon) after and gave them sanctuary on the 45-hectare Fonbonne estate, near Peille.

Present at last week’s celebration were Princess Stephanie’s children, Louis and Camille, HSH Prince Albert, and many other guests.

Baby and Nepal have been brought back to good health and appear to thrive in their home of four years.
