First King Tusk, And Now Prince Tusk


From Simon De Winter:

Just received the sad news that Colonel Joe, truly one of the most dazzling creatures roaming the surface of this earth, has passed away. During his life he amazed audiences around the globe. My thoughts go out to James Puydebois, the Circus Krone family and all his friends and admirers from Los Angeles to Munich. Thank you Joe.

Col. Joe trivia:  Joe was one of the first successful castration's of a male elephant in the United States.
