In 1980 someone in Circus World management had a San Diego Zoo connection and brought in Franz Tisch to take over the elephants. Some time later, to the delight of the Zoo Officials, they unloaded two dangerous elephants on Circus World, "Toomai" and "Chocolate". Realizing their mistake both were gotten rid of. "Toomai" to Jacobson and "Chocolate" to the Lowrey Park Zoo (another mistake).

1983: Gored Roman Schmitt as he was walking him from the barn to the paddock. Roman was gored through the leg and he ended up selling him to Gary Jacobson in 1984.
