She is only two -  but she trains real live elephants. Yvonne Kruse with the Bertram Mills Animals. 
Animal training is in the blood of two year old Yvonne Kruse wee daughter of the famous trainer - now working up his act presented by his wife at the Bertram Mills Circus - now in winter quarters at Ascot. Almost ever since she has been able to sit up - the sight of an elephant has excited Yvonne.. The elephants themselves treat her with great respect.. Her favourite is Kam - with whom she can do almost anything.. Unfortunately - because of regulations - Yvonne can only practice with the animals in the privacy of the practice ring - and not before the crowds who would like to see her in action.
