Sarasota Revisited #15

Looking East at the elephants standing behind the guys trimming feet.
First big elephant is "Sparks Mary".
With the exception of "Minyak", the last elephant in line, all the others were for sale.



Who bought these elephants and how much were they selling for?

Do you know what ever happened to the two bulls Paul Miller Owned? He had a bunch of other animals in semi-trailer shows that were poorly taken care of. Wonderfull set of photos,thanks for sharing.
