; ))


A man was on holiday in Kenya. While he was walking through
the bush, he came across an elephant standing with one leg raised in
the
air.
The elephant was in much distress, so the man approached
it carefully. When he knelt by the elephants foot, he saw large
thorn deeply embedded in the bottom of the foot.
As carefully and as gently as he could, he removed the thorn, and
the elephant gingerly put down its foot. The elephant turned to face
the
man and stared at him for a long moment. Eventually the
elephant trumpeted loudly, turned, and walked away.
For years after, the man remembered the elephant and the events
of that day. One day the man was walking through the zoo with his
son.
As they approached the elephant enclosure, one of the
creatures turned and walked over to where they stood at the rail.
It stared at him, and 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. Smiling weakly, he walked up to
the elephant.
Suddenly the elephant trumpeted again, wrapped its trunk around
one of the man's legs and swung him into the steel railing, killing
him instantly.
Probably wasn't the same elephant.....
