Sedgwick County Zoo elephants Cinda, left, and Stephanie were a popular attraction at the Sedgwick County Zoo before Cinda died in 2014, leaving Stephanie the zoo’s lone elephant. Since Cinda’s death, bringing more elephants to the zoo has been a top priority for zoo officials. Now, an animal-rights group is using legal action to try to block the import of six new elephants to the zoo.
