The three elephants being moved to the Performing Animal Welfare Society's sanctuary in San Andreas will travel from the Toronto Zoo aboard a private plane thanks to longtime animal activist Bob Barker. The announcement was made Friday.

The 88-year-old TV icon offered to fund the $880,000 flight after learning that one of the elephants wasn't well enough to withstand the long trip by truck, Barker spokesman Henri Bollinger said. Barker, a personal friend and public supporter of PAWS' founder Pat Derby, had previously offered to pay for the trip but was expecting to ferry the pachyderms by truck.
