Elephant Aids Joplin Tornado Cleanup (Video)


The Piccadilly Circus was scheduled to perform in Joplin over the Memorial Day weekend. But that was before the May 22nd tornado destroyed the town.

Still, the circus arrived in Joplin over the weekend, not to perform -- but to help with the cleanup. In this clip below, an elephant from the circus pulls a vehicle out of the storm damage.
