The remains of two elephants, died around 5,200 BP during the later Stone Age, were found together with stone tools at the Zoo Park in 1962 during exvacations for a reconstruction of the park by Mr E Bause of the municipality. Shortly afterwards, a semi-circular showcase was built around the find. It was removed in 1991 because it has been deteriorated and replaced by a memorial sculpture by Doerte Berner that had not been declared a National Monument yet although the Council requested the artist and installed a bronze plaque. The original remains are now stored at the National Museum.
