Buckles,
I found a note in Circus Report that Hoxie's Jessie and Bonnie were also at Miami in 1986. Can you tell us more about Hoxie and the Miami Zoo ride contract?

Buckles said...

No I had stopped listing elephants by then, the reason being my friendly neighborhood USDA Inspector asked if it was true that I knew where all the elephants in the country were and who owned them.
