Queen & Liz plus, a 3rd elephant Ruth came to Bensons Animal Park in New Hampshire in 1963. They were originally trained by Slivers Madison - exceptionally well trained matter of fact. The were were well taught and more importantly, well mannered. Ruth was sold privately in 1978. She led a rough life for a while until she was confiscated and donated to the New Bedford Zoo in Massachusetts. 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).
