Citta the psychic elephant backs Poland
Posted Thursday, June 07, 2012 by SNTV

Intro:

SNTV has met the psychic elephant of Krakow Zoo - and on Wednesday she was confidently predicting the outcome of Friday's opening Euro 2012 match between Poland and Greece.

Script:

The world's media were out in force at a zoo in Krakow, Poland on Wednesday - the star of the attraction, Citta the elephant.

Or should that be, Citta the psychic.

She successfully predicted the outcome of the UEFA Champions League final between Chelsea and Bayern Munich last month, and keepers at the zoo are hopeful her powers may extend to Euro2012.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Jerzy Pirog, Veterinarian:
"We kind of tried to predict the score and we used three animals: a parrot - an African Grey, a donkey and the elephant and Citta was the one who predicted correctly so we decided to do this game and try to foresee the score of the Euro 2012 Championship."

The tournament gets underway on Friday, with co-hosts Poland taking on former European champions Greece.

Despite the Polish side being the underdogs in the clash, Citta's melon choice seems to show her money's on the homeside.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Jerzy Pirog, Veterinarian:
"It's nice that she decided that the Polish team are going to win…maybe she knows much more about football than me…(laughs)".

We'll have to wait and see whether that prediction comes true. But Citta and the rest of the zoo are feeling pretty confident.
