Comments / pictures

Mike only began to show the slightest of symptoms on Saturday and was eating and drinking well as late as Sunday afternoon, but the illness progressed very rapidly. As soon as symptoms began we started treating him but by Monday morning there was nothing more anyone could do to prevent his passing,” according to Dr. Ashley Settles, Ringling Bros. Director of Veterinary Care.
