Topsy: the Startling Story of the Crooked-tail Elephant, P.T. Barnum and the American Wizard

From Margaret Mezzacapo

Topsy: the Startling Story of the Crooked-tail Elephant, P.T. Barnum and the American Wizard by Michael Daly

The title’s not kidding – the story is startling. I’m not sure which is worse, the fact that the story actually is true, or the fact that such massive cruelty to animals, dogs included, was sanctioned and swept under the rug. Reading this may change your viewpoint on a number of issues. It’s a well-researched, engrossing read.
