听力参考文本(文本与音频不全一致,敬请谅解):;She is five tons of gray, ponderous beauty.;Thats how Rex G. White of the Detroit News described the now-forgotten treasure of the Belle Isle Zoo: Sheba the Asian elephant.She arrived in Detroit in 1923 and lived at the Belle Isle Zoo until she died on Jan. 2, 1959.And it all began with a letter written by a schoolgirl.Lori Feret, who is writing the first comprehensive history of Belle Isle, joined Stateside to tell the untold story of Sheba. It goes something like this:A little girl wrote a letter to the Detroit News and asked if there was a way for schoolchildren to work together and buy something the Belle Isle Zoo didnt have: an elephant. The zoo started in the late 1800s with smaller animals, but as the 20th century approached, the animals in the zoo got bigger – more like a modern-day zoo.The News saw this as an opportunity for some good publicity, so a campaign was launched to have an ;elephant day,; where children across the city could contribute their lunch or milk money to the cause. 150,000 schoolchildren pooled their money together to raise about ,000 to help cover the ,750 price tag (more than ,000 by todays money) of the 600-pound elephant.The News sent a reporter to New York City to travel alongside the young elephant as she made the journey to Buffalo. After some adventures in Buffalo, they took a boat to the elephants new home in DetroitWhen she arrived, Sheba was tremendously popular. She was dubbed ;The School Childrens Elephant;.More elephants would follow her to Belle Isle in later years, but Sheba remained a star until the zoo closed in 1956.Listen to the full interview above to hear about the trouble Sheba got into on the way to Detroit, and what happened when a drunk man snuck into the elephant house and tried to take a nap with the elephant.201701/490060特别声明该文章中的迷你对话选在口语书籍,对话精讲为可可签约编辑编写,版权归可可所有。第一、迷你对话A: I think mum should not take aside.
