† Little Modoc is a dead Female ♀ Asian elephant, (Elephas maximus), who died at Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus, in United States, of from unknown reasons in 1943. (see detailed list).
Little Modoc was born wild 1888.
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
