In 1996 Kenny was on the red unit according to EEG.

In the death of Kenny, the USDA charged Ringling with “Animal Welfare Act Violations in the failure to provide veterinary care,” and Ringling paid $20,000 to settle out of court (August 28, 1998). The USDA concluded:

Kenny, the baby endangered Asian elephant, was forced to perform in Jacksonville, Florida, despite obvious illness. He was found dead hours later in a pool of bloody diarrhea.
