Lucy had a long circus career which began with a two-car show entitled Campbell Bros. It was owned by Wm. P. (Low Grass) Campbell. She was sold to the Ketrow Circus in 1923 and was with it until she became Seils-Sterling property for the 1931 season. At the auction of that show in Milwaukee in September 1938 she became Louis Meitus property. The author was present when she, Billy Sunday, and additional animals and equipment from Meitus were delivered to Zoo-park, (ex-Selig Zoo) Los Angeles, in 1940. Lucy was at Goebel's in Thousand Oaks prior to the outbreak of World War II and was used by Jack Joyce through mid-July, 1944, when, after she killed attendant Gabe Tucker, she was sold. She became the property of Ben Davenport and was with his organization until 1955 when she was deposited with Gran Circo Union. She has been dead for a number of years.
