• Short Summary

    Mr Buck has a baby elephant for a pet - he doesn't seem to treat it very kindly.

  • Description

    "Meet Mr. Buck, who makes a habit of collecting peculiar pets - (in this case from Malay.)" A man stands beside a large box. He has a baby tiger on a lead. Another man and a woman in an expensive looking fur trimmed coat look at the box. He opens up the box, pushing the baby tiger out of the way with his foot. A baby elephant comes out of the box. He grabs the elephant by the ear. "What do you think of him?" he asks. The other man helps to hold the elephant - they have an ear each - it looks pretty cruel. Mr Buck shows how he feeds the elephant with a bamboo tube. C/U of the elephant with its mouth open, the tube is stuck in, Mr Buck holds his trunk up. The elephant drinks milk from the tube.
