1927-07-27:Stor förlust för Cirkus Strassburger. Under Cirkus Strassburgers besök i Örebro har en av sällskapets nio elefanter avlidit. En tysk veterinär som eftertelegraferats kom för sent för att rädda det dyrbara djuret. Dödsorsaken var anemi, varjämte djuret, en 18-à 20-årig hona, även led av lungtuberkulos. Innan elefanten grävdes ned tillvaratogs för Karolinska läroverkets räkning, det omkring 200 kg. vägande huvudet, som efter nödig bearbetning skall införlivas med läroverkets zoologiska museum endera uppstoppat eller som kranium.Västmanlands Folkblad
