When Hippos Fly: Tucker’s Story

Eight-year-old hippo Tucker woke up last August 21st to find himself a father. Unfortunately, the arrival of the new baby meant that the small Topeka zoo where he lived could no longer accommodate him. Tucker had to go. Luckily for him, the San Francisco Zoo agreed to take him. Good news for Tucker, but how would he get there? Finally, FedEx volunteered to fly Tucker for free. The move took place on January 6th and went smoothly for all involved and Tucker is now happy in his new home.
