Hiroko

Years alone: 3

Hiroko

Hiroko the elephant has been alone at the Tennoji Zoo in Japan for 9 years since the death of her companion.

 

Hiroko’s mental state does not seem good. She is listless, and spends a lot of time swaying continuously—a common stress coping behavior seen in captive animals in poor conditions.

 

A sign on her enclosure suggest bullhooks and whips are using in her handling.
