Bathing the Elephants: A Mammoth Task

The Carson & Barnes Circus came to town Thursday and set up shop at The Fayette County Fairgrounds. Before a pair of performances, they held a free public demonstration as they washed their two elephants. About 75 locals showed up and saw La Grange Fire Chief Frank Menefee and assistant chief Frankie Srubar getting a lesson in scrubbing down the elephants (inset photo, above) before the elephant handler hosed down the pair of pachyderms using a La Grange Fire Truck.
