So why Hugo? Well since 1937 more than 22 circuses have used Hugo as their winter home due to the flat land, green grass and relative good winter weather. For those few months Hugo can boast having the second largest herd of elephants in the country.
I was curious as to why he died at such a young age. An accident perhaps while performing?
I couldn't find anything about Sammy Perez.
Like my hat?
I assume they are still alive, and Anna May was their elephant.
