Funicon The Man and The Elephant

A young man was on holiday in Kenya after graduating from
college. While he was walking through the bush, he came
across a young bull elephant standing with one leg raised
in the air.

The elephant seemed distressed so the man approached it
very carefully. He got down on one knee and inspected
the elephant's foot. There was a large thorn deeply
embedded in the bottom of the foot.

As carefully and as gently as he could he worked the
thorn out with his hunting knife, after which the elephant
gingerly put down its foot. The elephant turned to face
the man and with a rather stern look on its face, stared
at him. For a good ten minutes the man stood frozen --
thinking of nothing else but being trampled. Eventually
the elephant trumpeted loudly, turned and walked away.

The man never forgot that elephant or the events of that
day. Twenty years later the man was walking through the
zoo with his teenaged son. As they approached the elephant
enclosure, one of the creatures turned and walked over to
where they were standing at the rail. The large bull
elephant stared at him and lifted it's front foot off the
ground, then put it down. The elephant did that several
times, all the while staring at the man. The man couldn't
help wondering if this was the same elephant.

After a while it trumpeted loudly; then it continued to
stare at him. The man summoned up his courage, climbed
over the railing and made his way into the enclosure. He
walked right up to the elephant and stared back in wonder.

Suddenly the elephant trumpeted again, wrapped its trunk
around one of the man's legs and swung him wildly back and
forth along the railing, killing him.

Probably wasn't the same elephant.

In 1986, Peter Davies was on holiday in Kenya after graduating from Northwestern University .

On a hike through the bush, he came across a young bull elephant standing with one leg raised in the air. The elephant seemed distressed, so Peter approached it very carefully.

He got down on one knee and inspected the elephant's foot and found a large piece of wood deeply embedded in it. As carefully and as gently as he could, Peter worked the wood out with his hunting knife, after which the elephant gingerly put down its foot. The elephant turned to face the man, and with a rather curious look on its face, stared at him for several tense moments. Peter stood frozen, thinking of nothing else but being trampled. Eventually the elephant trumpeted loudly, turned, and walked away. Peter never forgot that elephant or the events of that day.

Twenty years later, Peter was walking through the Chicago Zoo with his teenaged son. As they approached the elephant enclosure, one of the creatures turned and walked over to near where Peter and his son Cameron were standing. The large bull elephant stared at Peter, lifted its front foot off the ground, then put it down. The elephant did that several times then trumpeted loudly, all the while staring at the man.

Remembering the encounter in 1986, Peter couldn't help wondering if this was the same elephant. Peter summoned up his courage, climbed over the railing and made his way into the enclosure. He walked right up to the elephant and stared back in wonder. The elephant trumpeted again, wrapped its trunk around one of Peter legs and slammed his stupid ass against the railing, killing him instantly.

Probably wasn't the same elephant.
This is for all of my friends who send me those heart-warming stories.
