    In1986, 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 e lephant 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 that day.

    Fifteen 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.

    He 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.

    There is no Chicago Zoo. It's called the Lincoln Park Zoo. I doubt it's a true story.

    Dickgtax, might that be the Lincoln Park Inn you are thinking about? I met Margie there a few times a few years ago.
