This is Gary Hill delivering "Hugo" to me at the Circus World Park in 1974, I forget his original name but as soon as he touched the ground he became "Hugo Schmitt".

When I left the Blue Show, I went back to Fla and had the opportunity to work with him at the Sanford Zoo. He was beating everyone up at the zoo. They had him in a pen with a hippo, no wonder he was pissed off! Buckles originally broke him at CW in 74 or 75? He was fat and lazy and no one there had a clue how to get around him. He was chained on a long run where he could get shade and water and they just through the feed over the fence, then while he ate they quickly cleaned up until he would chase them out.
