Incredible Story!

In 1986, 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 elephant seemed distressed, so Peter approached it very


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, Peter worked the wood

out with his 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


Peter never forgot that elephant or the events of that day.

Twenty 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 could not

help wondering if this was the same elephant.

Peter 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 him against the railing, killing him instantly.

Probably wasn't the same elephant..

This is for everyone who

sends me those heart-warming
bull $hit stories.

There are three rules I live my life by:
1. No matter where you are or what you are doing always look cool.
2. Don't be a pussy
3. When in doubt refer to rule number 1
