Killer elephant finds new home

An elephant that escaped from a German circus and killed a man over the weekend has been relocated to a German safari park.

On Saturday, the 34-year-old African elephant named Baby killed a 65-year-old man who was walking in the woods in southwestern Germany. Police said they were still investigating whether someone forgot to close the elephant's cage or if she was intentionally released.

A Safari Park spokesperson said Baby is being kept away from the public but is now living with three other elephants and "her socialisation is going well".
