Comments / pictures

"These elephants have been stars of this circus in year 2003 and 2004 as well and are called Madras, India, Tony and Mosly. The elephants are trained by the Italian circus family called Togni and belong to Circus Americano. At Circus Maximum they are trained by Anton Frank. "

"In May 2006, a truck and a trailer transporting the four Adult elephants swerved off a twisting road and ended up in a ditch. Three of the elephants escaped from the overturned trailer but were quickly rounded up by their handler, and spent the rest of the night in a nearby field. Rescue services were dispatched to the scene and succeeded in freeing India, the fourth elephant. The animal appeared to have only sustained minor injuries."
