The Overton Park Zoo in Memphis said the oldest African elephant

in the USA (at the time) has died at the age of 55 (not so old)

Other Africans I have known of had died much younger

Samson with Gary Jacobson died in 86 at 19

Billy from the Blue Show died in 87 at 15

Paul Gutheil just reminded me of Amy

I remember her very well with Buckles

She came to him from Bob Norris in 89

at the age of 5 & she went to Riddle's

in 2004 upon the Woodcock retirement

Riddle transferred her to the zoo in

Fresno California in 2015 & she was

euthanized there in December of 2017

for major trouble with leg ligaments

Thanks Paul
