An elephant named Mysore
He provided Sarah, 12, of Bloomington, US, a photo-op. by stepping on a watermelon, crushing it into messy pieces and mouthing them with his trunk. A lesson Sarah, a sixth grader, learnt after a behind-the-scene visit at the circus in town was, 'his table manners are terrible, the elephant's'. Mysore had his trainer Billy Morris spread out on a table apples, grapes and banana. Watermelons were on the floor. Mysore is on the payroll of Barnum & Bailey Circus.
