Comments / pictures

George actually owned two over the years, baby Asian elephants that he purchased to rent out for political rallies, although a 1966 story in The Post said George was willing to part with his 4-month-old elephant from Thailand, for $5,000 to $6,000.

One of the elephants was eventually sold to a traveling petting zoo called Jet’s. One was rented to a Republican convention where, it caught a cold.
