At the Sarasota, Florida winter quarters of Ringling Brothers, Barnum & Bailey Circus, Dolly snatched Edwin Rogers Schooley from the side of his horrified parents and crushed his head with one of her ponderous feet. Three days later Dolly was led into a pit, [...] where the 27-year-old elephant was given a huge dose of cyanide.

(Pawsweb word document)


While in Sarasota the winter of 1949-50 while people were visiting the elephant area, a small child wandered under the guard rail and startled "Dolly" who was dozing, she then kicked out fatally injuring the child. As the result of public outcry, she was shot 3/29/50
