Tusko, Al G. Barnes Circus Mid 1930’s

Posted By on November 8, 2017


The days when you could see such a magnificent elephant as this one, are most likely gone. You have to give the credit to the American circus that imported and trained these animals. Todays American public will never see such a wonder as this one. Most elephants in Africa now are being killed for food and tusks. Farms in India have taken over much of the land where elephants migrated or roamed season to season on their same path for century’s. It is said they are killed for passing though farm land, which at one time was their migrations path.
