[...] to the Hagenbeck Zoo in April of 1921
William Buckles Woodcock, 2008


This performance really did make John Ringling
whistle, and our wonderfully trained eighteen polar bears, twelve
Bengal tigers and the exotic item with fourteen zebras and camels also
pleased him mightily. In due course he wrote us a handsome cheque,
in addition transferring to us four elephants out of his American herd,
which by steady purchasing in these years since we last met he had
built up to some ninety animals.
Animals Are My Life, by Lorenz Hagenbeck


The other three elephants imported back to Germany from USA were Barnum Queen, Veneda, and Mary.
