Anyone know the history of this Gabriel elephant?

Hi Margaret, not to much. I think he came from a park in Maryland to California where I put him in the elephant show and some other shows. He was semi trained, like stretch and sit on tub. After the park went BK and checks bounced like a tennis ball and I went to Fl some of the animals were sold. I heard that Gabe went to Circus Vagass, and I heard... See More they renamed him there McLean?? really don't know for sure and I also heard he died in the early 80's. He did have only one tusk and the one he had was very much infected. I remember flushing his tusk every day at least twice to get the ugly puss out there. Marty Dinnis the vet did some surgery on him and it did not really help to much. Gabe was like my shadow where ever I went, could not even ask for a dog that good, just did not like women and others to much. Sage I met again years later at the LA Zoo not even knowing were she was, the other 2 africans I don't have a clue, Misty went to Lion Country Safari in Irvine, Ca were she killed a guy in 82 pr 83, then went to Wildlife Station at Martine Colette's place in San Fernando. Brian McMillan always went there to take her of the chains were she was tied under a few shady tree's and nobody came near her except him. I went there with him once or twice when we took her of the chains and took her to the creek to play in the water and I guess from there she went to
Cuneo??
