Comments / pictures

"Josky had the biggest head I ever saw on an Asian female elephant. In her early career she worked in an arena act carrying a tiger .

She was added to the H-W Herd from the Hall Farm in 1915 following the Peru flood. Before winding up with Jack Moore, she had trouped with H-W, JR and S-F with the Corp. and afterward with Barnes and RBBB.
Died in Hugo following the 1968 season."

William Buckles Woodcock
