PORTLAND – Lily the baby elephant got her first taste of Halloween Friday.

Portland’s prized pachyderms were allowed to play with, smoosh and eat a 1,300 pound pumpkin at the Oregon Zoo’s annual Squishing of the Squash. The event also included a scavenger hunt with tricks and treats for little zoo visitors.
