Welcome to the eighth episode of Coexisting With Nonhuman Animals.
On my first podcast, Jay Wont darts podcast, I covered the story of Jumbo, a circus elephant in New Zealand. I absolutely hate the name "Jumbo", I prefer to call her "Mrs Elephant", the idea of naming an elephant "jumbo", after the famous circus elephant, really bothers me. I met Mrs Elephant, and she is definitely more than just a stereotypical item of a circus's property. For one thing, shes now free from the circus!
