Mills Brothers Circus, United States
. The last elephant left in 1966. Mills Brothers Circus closed down in 1966.
Mills brought many acts to this country that went to RBBB later. Most shows including RBBB arrainged visas for the length of the contract leaving people to either leave the country or make new arrangements with INS on their own. Mills got the acts they brought in residence, or at least long term visas, allowing them to go on to other work in this country after finishing with Mills. Some of the people thus benifited had already had contact with RBBB and were able to get booked over there when at liberty.
After return to U.S. "Lelabardi" was sold, along with several other elephants, to Mills Bros. Circus where she remained until that show closed in 1966 and the elephant Herd
sold to Gran Circo Union in Mexico.
