Records about Judy from William "Buckles" Woodcocks Blog at http://www.bucklesw.blogspot.com/
Tex, Padmuh, Tara, Yamina, Rani, Seeta and Rajee were the seven punks added in 1953 as "The Seven Wonders," and all included in the 1955 Ringling Brothers & Barnum & Bailey Combined Shows. In December 1957 the show toured in Mexico City, where four of their elephants were sold to the local zoo - Judy, Seeta, Tara & Yamina.
Judy was reported to have bolted after their arrival in Mexico and was killed immediately after striking a Mexican.
