Benson Wild Animal Farm (Bedford Zoo), in Hudson, New Hampshire, United States
, was founded in 1924. The last elephant left in 1987. Benson Wild Animal Farm (Bedford Zoo) closed down in 1987.
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.
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).
