T. Barnum and scheduled to be shipped across the Atlantic. Despite being told that Jumbo has occasional attacks of musth (a hormonal condition in mature bull elephants characterized by highly aggressive behavior) which makes him periodically unsafe for giving visitors rides around the zoo, eccentric old Mrs. Pennycook leads a protest against the export - writing anthemic songs about Jumbo to swell her cause. Then she is found murdered. Could the killer have been Barnum's representative or Jumbo's keeper, both of whom were her opponents and who will soon be leaving the country with their four-legged charge? Or was the killer closer to home and the motive more opportunistic? Written by don @ minifie-1 (corrections by ignazia) See less
