Queenie the waterskiing elephant dies
Queenie was put down earlier this week at the age of 59 after her health deteriorated, according to the Wild Adventures theme park in south Georgia where she retired to in 2003.
Dane began training Queenie to water ski at a Florida theme park, where the animal performed to music several times a day for 15 years. She also played the harmonica. Dane, who performed alongside Queenie, said the elephant's death was "extremely sad".
