Comments / pictures

"In 1916 Joseph also delivered a young African elephant to Honolulu’s Kapiolani Park Zoo, the first elephant housed there. Named Miss Daisy, she was a fixture until March 1933 when she went of a rampage. She killed her keeper George Conradt and got loose. She was gunned down by soldiers from an Army base." //Richard Reynolds III

Contradictory records:

The North American Regional Studbook for the African Elephant lists 'Daisy' as arriving to the Honolulu Zoo at an unknown date and euthanized in 1916. It is assumed this is the animal spoken of by Richard Reynolds, the "first elephant housed there."
