A small ivory elephant found in a 1931 time capsule during the overhaul of Maple Leaf Gardens has the new owners of the building baffled.

Experts contacted by Loblaws and Ryerson University for insight were unable to explain why the elephant was there.

The small carved trinket, made with fragments of blue ribbon, was among a dozen items – including hockey rule books and newspapers that look aged but remain legible – in the time capsule unveiled on Thursday in the engineering building at Ryerson.
