TUPELO, Miss. Here is the CNN/WIBW Photo of the Day. A circus elephant injured last year in a drive-by shooting, who returned to the ring Thursday in the city where she was shot.

Carol the elephant was shot in April 2013 on the grounds of BancorpSouth Arena, in Tupelo, Mississippi, while on tour with "The Greatest Show on Earth."

She was struck behind her ear. The 40-year-old Asian elephant took a few weeks off to recover. But she’s better and back in the ring!
