Experience a Taste of Wabash...The story of MODOC!!!
On November 11, 1942, the Great American Circus prepared itself to stage
an Armistice Day fundraiser for the sixth year at Wabash High School.
Great American’s special animal act featured three gray Indian elephants,
Judy, Empress and Modoc, who stood tethered outside the school gym waiting their chance to perform,
when dogs suddenly barked at the elephants’ feet, terrorizing them to bolt loose.
While Empress and Judy simply meandered to nearby neighborhoods, the twelve year old, 1900-pound Modoc barnstormed.
Modoc charged to downtown Wabash where her long snout picked up the scent
of peanuts roasting in Bradley Brothers drugstore.
