Trainers at Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo are mourning the loss of Taj, the oldest elephant in North America.

The 71-year-old has been with discovery kingdom since 1978, when it was known as marine world, in Redwood City.

Before that, she traveled with Circus Vargas, and once belonged to the Hare Krishnas. Her trainer called her one of the sweetest elephants you'll ever meet and the cause of death will be determined at U.C. Davis.
