It sounds like a plot point from some comedy farce: A circus elephant wounded in a drive-by shooting.
But it actually happened in Tupelo, Mississippi.
Carol the elephant is expected to make a full recovery. She's part of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey circus. The bullet hit the 39-year-old Asian elephant in the neck between her shoulder and ear.
Ringling Bros. has moved Carol to its circus farm in Springfield, Missouri to complete her recovery. Trainer Catherine Carden appeared on "Starting Point" this morning, with Carol in the background, to discuss new security measures the circus is taking after the incident and the latest in Carol's recovery.
