AN INTERESTING STORY! - Could it be true?

I don't usually like these heartwarming stories, but this one is truly


In 1986, Mkele Mbembe 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 Mbembe 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, Mbembe 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. Mbembe stood frozen, thinking of nothing else but being trampled. Eventually the elephant trumpeted loudly, turned, and walked away. Mbembe never forgot that elephant or the events of that day.

Twenty years later, Mbembe 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 Mbembe and his son Tapu were standing. The large bull elephant stared at Mbembe, lifted its front foot off the ground, and then put it down. The elephant did this several times then trumpeted loudly, all the while staring at the man.

Remembering the encounter in 1986, Mbembe couldn't help wonder if this was the same elephant.

Mbembe 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 Mbembe's legs and slammed him against the railing, killing him instantly.

Probably wasn't the same elephant.

Reply:Ahhh...nice one. Made me laugh.

Reply:yes it is
Reply:Senario: The elephant was the same one, however when this Mbembe climbed into the enclosure the reason the old Bull elephant collared him was to let him know that when he took the peice of wood out of his foot wayback it hurt like hell. And this was his way of paying him back for the hurt he caused all those years ago.

And the reason for the staring was it wouldn't be the done for a young bull elephant to cry out in pain ashe was trying to put on a brave face on in front of his older siblings.

It could possibly be true who knows like they say 'Elephants Never Forget'

Reply:Not true. Mkele Mbembe is the African equivalent of the Loch Ness monster - a legend that dinosaurs are still living in uncharted African jungles.

Thought you might like to know that.
