A statement from the zoo said Tyranza who was

also called Ty was born in the wild in 1964

She did a stint as a circus elephant with Ringling Brothers

before retiring to the Memphis Overton Park Zoo in 1977

That "circus stint" was actually

about a year & a half at the park

in Haines City with Buckles herd

She came from a West Coast park

at about age 10 known as Tyronza

as noted below with Scott Riddle

She was culled from that herd

well before they transferred

to the Blue Show in 78
