Mr Woodcock, My name is Glenn Sullivan. I am Australian by birth (don't hold it against me) and currently work elephants at Whipsnade zoo, UK. I worked for S.Riddle for a short time at his farm in Arkansas. I have watched your blog daily since it started and enjoyed the photos as well as the clever remarks. I have seen on occasion references to Australian circuses and would like to ask, time permitting if any of the Australian contributors know of an asian cow called 'Tanya' that arrived in Australia in or around 1964 with another called 'Tricia' and went to Perth zoo, where I worked 'Tricia'. I believe she was on the Ashton show but am not sure. If photos become available put them on the blog if you don't mind. I thank you in advance and I am hoping to attend an elephant meeting in November at the Ringling Stud farm. I would love to have the opportunity to meet you. Take care.
Sincerely Glenn Sullivan
To Mr. Perry, In regard to the "bushranger" pictured in the 1938 Tim McCoy program, there was no name included in the article. I might add that despite the Colonel's optimism, the show folded in a matter of weeks resulting in great financial loss. Buckles
