Mid 1920's, elephants in the Mississinewa River in front of the quarters.

I'm not an elephant hand so I don't know a lot of the rights and wrongs in dealing with them. With two males loose and breeding at the same time only a few feet apart, would this have been a pretty dangerous situation to be around, let alone trying to get control of them to come back to shore? Would a couple females have been attached like they did with Tusko to control them? This is a really incredible photo Buckles.

It sure looks like a couple of happy elephants in the river.
