The Carson & Barnes Circus never had more than five elephants on the show under Jack Moore. The 1962 group included Mabel, Jenny, Josky, Wanda and Suzie. At the close of the season Wanda was sold to a Texas oil man named Kilroy. The same year Kilroy imported another female Asian elephant named Missy, who he had trained by Smokey Jones. Wanda and Missy would then stay together for the next thirty three years until Missy's death in 1997. This included a donation together to the San Antonio Zoo and transfers to the Fort Worth and Detroit zoos.
