Comments / pictures


"The gentleman standing to the left is Richard "Army" Maguire. The best elephant trainer in my opinion out there. Next to him is one year old Ceasar, seventeen year old Vance than my dad. I wish I had more pics of Army, but when he was around he was trying to teach me things. Which was harder then training the elephant most of the time." //Mike Swain
