After living nearly her whole life in Alaska, Maggie the elephant was loaded and locked into a special metal crate Thursday at the Alaska Zoo and transported in a C-17 cargo plane to Travis Air Force Base in Fairfield. Her new home will be the Performing Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) in San Andreas, where she will have 30 acres to share with nine other elephants.
