Comments / pictures

The African Jackie came thru animal broker - Earl Tatum. I believe he had imported a small group (5-7). This was the last of the group, he delivered her in August 1980.Bret Bronson, 2010

Queen & Liz plus, a 3rd elephant Ruth came to Bensons Animal Park in New Hampshire in 1963. Ruth was sold privately in 1978. Queen & Liz remained at the park until Feb. '88. They were sold, along with 'Jackie' an African, the previous fall at the park liquidation auction to Hawhtorn Corp (John Cuneo).
