Comments / pictures

Adam Forepaugh jr, was almost killed in Lancaster New Hampshire by the dancing elephant,"Old Dick' while trying to load him aboard Forepaugh's elephant palace car.

He was knocked off his horse on to the ground by the elephant and probably about to be gored, when he was saved in a nick of time by the big elephant"Old Betts' who knocked Old Dick away
