Loch Ontario Monster? Nope; only Del-Rita. Elephants like water; but Del-Rita is absolutely mad about bathing. There she is happily paddling off Ontario Place; where she's one of the stars of one-ring Puck's Canadian Travelling Circus. She's taken for her swim every morning. She's the only elephant I've ever seen actually swimming; said circus spokesman. She goes way in over her head. It's hard to get her out. Del-Rita; 7-year-old female; likes to go under; too; using her trunk as snorkel. That's the Haida in background.
