Margaret is a living Female ♀ Asian elephant (Elephas maximus) , located at the Endangered Ark Foundation, in United States.
Margaret arrived to the Endangered Ark Foundation unknown date, relocated from the Riddles Elephant and Wildlife Sanctuary, in United States.
Margaret was born wild 1969, captured 1970 .
Isa, Lilly, Alta, Viola, and Margaret were babies about mid chest high when I took them to Mexico City in 1975 for Atayde Bros Circus. I have pictures someplace of Margaret and I one the 5 floor of a TV studio where we were doing publicity. Being young and ignorant (as opposed to old and ignorant. There I beat everybody too it. LOL) I loaded her into an elevator that was available. It seemed a better option then walking her up 5 flights of steps. I wasn't aware of how an elephant will sometims react crossing a bridge, or stepping on something that moves like a scale. The only thing kept me from being crushed when it started raising was I was able to jump up on the railing and hold onto the grate on the ceiling. The door opened in to the studio and Margaret and I kicked through shit and piss and made our triumphant first appearance on Mexican television. I had on white pant's and a tan shirt and years later when my sons were looking at the 8X10's they asked why I wore dirty clothes to a tv show. I told them they were clean before we got on the elevator. When we were finished taping that trusting little baby followed me right back into the elevator for a bunch of bananas, and we repeated the process going down, which scared her worse then going up.
