Contradictory records:

Tom Parkinson:
1921: Meanwhile, the Kings bought an elephant for 1921 from Mugivan. During the season it was staked beside the cars one night in Ohio and glutted itself on spoiled apples piled nearby. Over night in the baggage car it swelled so much that it could hardly get out of the door the next day at Ashland, O. Then, having walked to the lot, it died. That was 1921, a year the show had a good spring, made Eastern Canada but didnt do so well coming out of there.
