0469.0014: Death of Myrtle
Caption reads - "Myrtle Dead - You Are a Good Elephant Now." Myrtle was the second to last escaped Sells-Floto elephant to be captured at Cranbrook, September 10, 1926. She perhaps died of pneumonia or was put down by rifle fire because of her poor physical condition. This shows where she was found near the base of Moyie Mountain SE of Cranbrook.
