An elephant with the Ringling Bros. circus is recovering after it was hit by a bullet in a drive-by shooting.

The elephant, named Carol, was shot Tuesday while the crew was setting up in Mississippi.

Police say leads are slim – and they don’t have a suspect.

The 39-year-old elephant is expected to make a full recovery.

More than $1600 dollars is being offered to find the person responsible.
