Tucker won’t be in Kansas anymore

Zookeepers in Topeka, Kan.,  are bidding adieu to their 8-year-old hippo named Tucker, who will be driven to the San Francisco Zoo at the end of the month.

Tucker is the father of an unplanned baby, Hope, who was born in August and crowded their exhibit.

So the San Francisco Zoo, which happened to have an empty exhibit, decided to take Tucker.

His goodbye party is scheduled for Nov. 22.

How about those elands?
