When Jumbo was only one week old he was bigger than his mother, Mumbo
One day the circus came to town. When the keeper saw Jumbo, he was so desperate for a new act he took him away from Mumbo.
ABNORMAL ELEPHAHNT Jumbo travelled around with the circus as a part of their act.
ABNORMAL ELEPHAHNT Jumbo was scared of the people from the circus. They would beat him with a large stick.
ABNORMAL ELEPHAHNT Every night they locked him in a cage far too small for him. He had little room to move and the top of the cage sat on his back.
ABNORMAL ELEPHAHNT One night while everyone was asleep, Jumbo accidentally broke the cage.
ABNORMAL ELEPHAHNT Jumbo ran for his life trying not to stomp in case he woke the keeper.
Unfortunately, the circus wasn’t near his home so while Jumbo was running by the wharf, he jumped onto a huge raft passing by.
For Jumbo, the raft was quite small. However he didn’t think this was so bad as it was strong enough to hold him.
After one week of seasickness, lack of sleep and food, Jumbo decided to get off the raft.
To Jumbo’s surprise, he had managed to get off the raft near his home. Jumbo ran to find Mumbo.
Mumbo! “PEACE OUT!”
Mumbo had found herself a new family. A sad and lonely Jumbo slowly made his way home.
Many years later Jumbo was spotted with Mumbo, both with flowers in their ears.
