    Background: ZURICH, SWITZERLAND

    Television cameramen were given a rare opportunity on July 27 to observe the birth of a baby elephant. The baby was the fist elephant to be born in Switzerland's Zurich Zoo, and was said to be doing well after an apparently effortless delivery. Zoo staff assisted at the birth and helped the youngster to its feet a few minutes after the delivery. Mother and baby seemed quite unperturbed by the presence of zoo officials and television cameras.
