Animal Kingdom May Jointly Buy Elephant Park
Disney's Animal Kingdom is part of a consortium considering buying a couple‚Äôs elephant sanctuary and turning it into a national center for pachyderm research, breeding and training. Under a draft plan, the Animal Kingdom and nine zoos from around the nation would team up to buy the 330-acre Elephant and Wildlife Sanctuary for $3.6 million, though both sides said the deal is still being discussed. The facility, which has 13 elephants, has been run for 16 years by Scott and Heidi Riddle. The consortium hopes to begin operating it by this summer.
