Dead girlfriend: Germany’s oldest elephant is now alone

Augsburg (dpa) – With her ears she stirs up the wind, wagging her tail, she chases away flies. She quietly crushes one banana after another. The elephant cow Targa eats around 50 every day at the Augsburg zoo. She also receives 40 kilograms of vegetables, but they must be steamed.

At 67, Targa is Germany’s oldest elephant, according to the zoo. The animal is also one of the oldest human-supported elephants in the world. Converted to human lives, Targa would be around 100 years old.
