Doc was the second Asian elephant to suffer from symptoms of the Elephant Endotheliotropic Herpes virus and successfully be treated.

We have several elephants here who have clearly shown they don't have an aptitude for it, so they're either in a breeding program or leading the life of Riley.'' Doc, over there, ``is a real friendly elephant, but he's very timid as well. . . . He likes the routines, but he seemingly doesn't like all the confusion around the circus. He was out on the road for about two months, and he just didn't like it. So we brought him back. //John Kirtland
