Records about Cutie from William "Buckles" Woodcocks Blog at
I had seen Luna & Cutie kill the wardrobe lady in the first year I was on Dailey Bros. Circus.
Cutie was not a killer. Luna wasn't either.

Luna was blind in one eye, if you walked up to her on her blind side she would swing around toward you, for it scared her. (the wardrobe lady was Donna McMahon's great aunt I think. Gertie was her name.) The elephants were chained just outside the ladies dressing room, on the back side. Because it was a small lot. Gertie came in to the dressing room to plug in her lights, and she turned and went out the wrong way, walking right into Luna's blind side. When Luna turn fast she knocked Gertie into Cutie. Both elephants were scared. They reacted out of fear. They were not trying to be mean. But they stepped on her and knocked her back and forth between them. It was horrible to see and hear.There were only about three or four of us in the dressing room. There was supposed to be a watch man on duty at all times. He wasn't there. A clown and a groom on the horses grabbed her by the arm, and the bulls pulled her back in. By this time the bulls were scared so bad, they had lost all control.
