Comments / pictures

""Gary's Elephant" Tony, came from the Diano herd, he first had him on the Zerbini show, whether Tarzan was in on the deal or not I don't know, but when Gary went to Hawthorn, "His Elephant", Tony went with him Gary worked him until the early '90's, when Tony picked Gary up & pitched him over top the other elephants, he was retired."
