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, inspected the elephants 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 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 teenage son.
As they approached the elephant enclosure, one of the creatures turned
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 could not 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 him against the railing, killing him instantly.
Probably wasn't the same elephant !




This is for everyone who sends me those heart-warming bullshit stories.




I thought that was hilarious and had to share! :lol:

There are way too many of those fuzzy, wussy, heart warming stories and/or chain letters that really Haggis piss me off.

This is not one of them, and I am willing to bet that out there, there is a group of idiots mourning the loss of the guy from this story.

I am sure that if you post this up on telephone poles here in corrupticut, that people will get into such a tizzy and end up collecting money for the guy's family.

This makes me go :( because it doesn't reflect well on the nation where my parents are from...

...in Hungary in the middle 90s there was this Brazilian soap opera that was immensely popular, about some slave girl...

...and they started a campaign to raise money to buy her freedom.

That sounds like something they would do in the former USSR as well! :doh:
