New Bedford Elephants Get New Toys
Legendary pacyderm citizens Emily and Ruth are enjoying some new toys thanks to the hard work of students at MassArt.
For the fourth year in a row, the students designed and constructed oversized toys for the elephants at Buttonwood Park Zoo. MassArt sophomore Monica Koenig tells WBSM News they unveiled their largest toy to date, the "Archimedes Screw".
Also installed for the elephants is a wind-chime like toy that Emily and Ruth can tug on.
The toys took several months to create from design to finish.
