Zimbabwe | 32 baby elephants spirited out of holding pen at Hwange NP; may be headed for zoos

Three dozen baby elephants at the centre of a controversy over the sale of wildlife to Chinese zoos have left Zimbabwe after they were loaded secretly onto a cargo flight, the Telegraph has learnt. 

Thirty-two of 37 young elephants were removed from a holding facility in Hwange National Park in the early hours of Thursday morning and loaded onto a Saudia Cargo jet at Victoria Falls airport in the afternoon, sources close to transfer said.
