I have seen a number of press items of her early career in Baraboo and appearantly Helfer did too and assumed this was his elephant Modoc. (The pictures in that book is Big Modoc, an elephant Helpher most likely never met) Both these elephants died in Sarasota Quarters. Big Modoc in 1957 at age 57 and Little Modoc in 1943 at age 50. //Buckles Woodcock
