Yvonne Kruse with the Bertram Mills animals.: Animal training is in the blood of two year old Yvonne Kruse we 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 over s~ace she has bee 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. Photo shows Yvonne Kruse hiding beneath one of her big friends is surprised by a ''trunk call''.j (Credit Image: © Keystone Pictures USA/ZUMAPRESS.com)
