A circus performer shows of off his skills in an incredible stunt with one of his trained elephants. In breath-taking footage the trainer is launched into the air by his animal companion. After flying through the air he scores a perfect slam dunk.
Rene Casselly Jr, 21, currently performs with the National Hungarian Circus. The acrobat is the son of Rene Casselly Sr and Alexia Casselly, who also perform with him. He has been performing with his family, including his sister, Merrylu, since they were young.
Casselly and his family performs with their five beloved elephants, Betty, Kimba, Mambo, Nanda and Tonga. Merrylu married 26-year-old circus director Jozsef Richter in Budapest in 2016, parading out of the city’s Basilica atop one of the family’s elephants.
The Casselly family was also featured in the Danish-made documentary, The Circus Dynasty, about two of Europe’s most eminent circus families.
