Thanks to Mozart's music, Suma, an elephant female from the Zagreb zoo, has managed to overcome the grief caused by the death of his partner, Patna, with whom he shared the last ten years, AFP reports.
The management found that classical music does well for Suma by chance, during a recent ceremony organized to mark 81 years since the establishment of the zoo, explained director Mladen Anic.
"I organized a concert right in front of Suma's pavilion. At first, she was nervous and threw pebbles and dust in the direction of the participants" at the show, he said.
But from the first Mozart agreements, he calmed down, closed his eyes and listened without moving the whole concert.

"It was fascinating. I understood immediately," added Anic, who immediately demanded the installation of a hi-fi system in Suma's "home."
The woman, who since the death of Patna has only eaten very little and was permanently depressed, has found her appetite and manages to console herself with Mozart's music, but listens with pleasure and Vivaldi, Bach or Shubert.
