Records about Juno from William "Buckles" Woodcocks Blog at http://www.bucklesw.blogspot.com/
"Mr. Kellner called me in October of 1976 saying the three elephants were for sale so I talked with Kenneth Feld and they made a deal. I sent Gary Jacobson up to the show and he brought them back to the Ringling Park. Here they are with new names "Sid", "Louie" and "Juno" making the march in Portland, Ore. in 1978 with the Blue Show with "Major" and "Charlie" behind them." //Buckles Woodock

2017-01-24: Diagnosed with cancer: "The animal care staff at the El Paso Zoo have received a biopsy report indicating a mass in 49-year-old Asian elephant Juno’s right mammary gland appears malignant, meaning the cells in the mass are exhibiting cancerous characteristics."
