Citta the elephant predicts Polish win over Russia
Warsaw, June 11 (IANS/RIA Novosti) Poland will beat leaders Russia in their Euro 2012 Group A clash on Tuesday, at least according to Citta, a fortune-tellng elephant, local Polish radio reported Monday.
The Russians demolished the Czech Republic 4-1 in their Friday opener, whereas the Poles could only draw 1-1 against Greece.
Citta, a 33-year-old elephant who lives at Krakow Zoo, selected a melon symbolizing a Polish victory, rejecting others representing a Russian win or a draw in the coming match in Warsaw.
She beat out competition from a parrot and a donkey to get the job as Euro 2012 fortune-teller by correctly predicting Chelsea's victory over Bayern Munich in the Champions League final, but got off to a bad start, wrongfully prophesying a Polish win over the Greeks.
Zoo officials are organising a show for Citta to predict the winner of every match featuring Poland, and all the games in the knockout stage of the tournament.
It was the eerily accurate predictions of Paul the Octopus at the 2010 World Cup that started the psychic animal craze.
Paul correctly predicted the outcome of every match Germany played, as well as Spain's victory over The Netherlands in the final.
