    In 1986, a young man named Peter Davies from Chicago was on Holiday in Kenya after his college graduation. During a hike through the bush, he came upon a young bull elephant standing with his right front leg in the air. The elephant was in obvious distress , so Peter apporached the elephant carefully for a better look. He got down on one knee, inspected the elephant's foot, and and found a large piece of wood deeply embedded in it....As carefully as he could, Peter worked the wood out with his knife, after which, the relieved giant gingerly put down its foot.

    The elephant looked down upon Peter with what seemed to be a curious expression... It stared at him for several tense moments. Peter knelt before this young giant frozen, thinking only of being trampled to death....Eventually, the elephant trumpeted loudly, turned and walked away... Peter would never forget that encounter which would make a lasting impression on him for life....

    Twenty years later, Peter was visiting the Chicago zoo with his young son. As they approached the elephant enclosure, one of the creatures turned toward them and began to approach Peter and his son. The large bull elephant looked down at Peter, lifted it's right front foot off the ground. The elephant did this repeatedly while trumpeting loudly and staring at the pair. Recalling his incredible encounter in 1986, Peter could not help but wonder if it was possible that this was the same young bull he had encountered so many years before.... Peter summoned up his courage, climbed the railing into the enclosure, and walked right up to the bull elephant and stared back in wonder. The elephant trumpeted loudly, wrapped its trunk around one of Peter's legs, and slammed him against the railing killing him instantly.....Probably wasn't the same F@#king elephant....!

    This is for all of those who send out those heart-warming B.S. stories on email.....
