The elephant in the garden, eating Mrs. Downey's cabbage

Sonny Williams writes:
Years ago Mrs Downey(Coy's mother) lived on Fairgrounds Street where the extension office is now. One early summer morning she called the police department and said, Send someone out here quick. There's an elephant in my garden eating all my cabbage!" A carnival had moved in the fairgrounds that night and an elephant had gotten loose. - Sonny Williams
