An interesting animal story

White Fox

Recommended Posts

Pretty incredible really




In 1972, Joe Miller was on holiday in Kenya after graduating from

TulsaJunior College .


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 Joe

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, Joe worked the wood out with his knife,

after which the elephant gingerly put down its foot.


The elephant turned to Joe, and with a rather curious look on its face,

stared at him for several tense moments.Troy stood frozen, thinking of

nothing else but being trampled. Eventually the elephant trumpeted loudly,

turned, and walked away. Joe never forgot that elephant or the events of

that day.


Thirty years later, Joe was walking through the Tulsa Zoo with His family.

As they approached the elephant enclosure, one of the creatures turned and

walked over to near where Joe and his Family were standing. The large bull

elephant stared at Joe, 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 1972, Troy could not help wondering if this was

the same elephant. Troy 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 Troy 's legs and slammed him against the railing, killing him



Probably wasn't the same elephant.

Nope. Don't think it is true anyhow.


Just another of these internet jokes floating around.


([Quietly] ... But you know, some people are a little gullible and will believe things like that. )
