Minnie and Babe arrived together to Zoo New England from a private New York company owner in June 1953. In January 1973, they were again sold together to the Carson & Barnes Circus. Minnie still resides there, though Babe was "Lost to Followup" according to the North American Regional Studbook for the Asian Elephant.

In the 2007 season, Billy Morris presented elephants on the Garden Brothers Circus leased from Carson & Barnes. He presented a three act with Susie, Bunny and Minnie.

In the 2008-2009 seasons, Ramon Esqueda presented elephants on the Ringling Brothers & Barnum & Bailey Gold Unit leased from Carson & Barnes. He presented a three act with Susie, Bunny and Minnie. No elephant rides were offered, being a Ringling show.
