Caption

four circus elephants being transported on one of GIBBS Transport international trucks, by driver Baden PETRIE after a show in Westport, a curious fact - all the animals heads had to face the river (Buller) to ensure their safe journey through the Buller Gorge, on a previous trip many years ago one elephant of this group had it's head damaged by a rock face in the Lower Gorge, the same animal on this journey towards Westport became so agitated on the truck deck as they approached the site of his previous accident that he had to be unloaded from the truck and walked past the danger area, then he was content to be re-loaded and continue his journey
