Ostriches mixing in a yard with zebras. Young people enjoying the antics of brown bears and zebras. A man and woman smiling as they watch the animals. A male lion, in his pen, walks toward the camera, as does a rhinoceros (missing a horn) in his pen. A father holds his young daughter up so she can see better. A number of mountain goats are climbing down rocks in their enclosure. A British soldier is amongst the visitors watching the animals. View from behind spectators watching elepants in their large outdoor area. Closeup of elephant's eye. Two elephants in harnesses are seen at work, lifting large iron radiators from rubble at the side of a road in town. They place the radiators on a flat bed trailer. Next, they tow a large steel framework from the rubble. A large group of spectators watches these goings on, and some feed one of the elephants, putting a piece of fruit in its trunk. The keeper directs the elephants to other heavy objects in the rubble, which they pick up and carry with their trunks, placing them on the flat bed trailer. With crowds still watching, the zoo keeper leads leads the elephants as they pull the loaded trailer along the street, while pedestrians watch.
