    While on holiday in Kenya, a man is separated
    from his group while walking through the bush a man comes across an
    elephant standing with one leg raised in the air. The elephant seems
    distressed so the man approaches very carefully.

    He gets down on one knee and inspects the bottom
    of the elephant's foot only to find a large thorn deeply imbedded. As
    carefully and as gently
    as he can he removes the thorn and the elephant
    gingerly puts its foot down.

    The elephant turns to face the man and with a
    rather stern look on its face, stares at him. For a good ten minutes the
    man stands frozen thinking of nothing else but being trampled.
    Eventually the elephant turns and walks away. The man finds his way back
    to safety and for years after the man often remembers and ponders the
    events of that day.

    One day the man is walking through the zoo with
    his son. As they approach the elephant enclosure, one of the elephants
    turns and walks over to where they are standing at the rail. It stares at
    him and the man can't help wondering if this is the same elephant. The
    man climbs tentatively over the railing and makes his way Into the
    enclosure. He walks right up to the elephant and stares back in wonder.

    Suddenly the elephant wraps its trunk around one
    of the man's legs and swings him wildly back and forth along the
    railing, instantly killing him.

    Probably not the same elephant then.
