The ten-year-old African Bush elephant, Nino, has had to change zoos three times in the past five years because of his aggressive behavior toward female elephants, including pushing them into the pool. However his attitude to male elephants is described as "affectionate."
"He only liked his buddies and hit the cows with his trunk, and was very disrespectful on the whole," Michal Grzes, the conservative Law and Justice (PiS) deputy for Poznan said.
Nino was sent to Warsaw Zoo, where he lived for three years, until his aggressive behavior led to his transfer to a zoo in Budapest before he once again returned to Poznan.
Grzes said that if Nino does not alter his behavior and breed, he will become "dead weight" for the zoo. He is currently being kept separate from the other animals.
However, zookeepers have not lost all hope. Nino is still young and will soon be introduced to a female from the Netherlands to try and tempt him into breeding.
