Comments / pictures

In 1995, Bucky Steele sold five of his six elephants to Carson & Barnes Circus - Zola, Lulu, and Chang with Whimpy and her son Boy. The only elephant he retained was Buke, who was killed seven years later.

In the 2007-2008 seasons, Tim Frisco worked dates with Zola, Lulu, Chang & Obert, leased to different circuses.

In the 2009 season, Tim Frisco presented elephants on the Royal Hanneford Circus leased from Carson & Barnes. He displayed a two act with Obert and Val, and later in the show presented a three act with Chang, Lulu & Obert. At the time, Obert was the only intact male on the road in America, in addition to Larry Carden's castrated bull Bo. Elephant rides were offered for $10/person before/after the show and during intermission, worked by Zola, Lulu & Chang.
