Summary: Pinky shares a story she recently heard from her friend Tim. Are elephants scary?
Pinky: I heard a pretty interesting story from my friend Tim. He was telling me that there was this mommy and baby elephant in Africa, right? And then the baby elephant apparently got too close to a full grown rhinoceros, so the rhinoceros stabbed the baby elephant with its horn and killed it. Sad yeah?
So then, more than a year passes, and the mommy elephant is just walking around somewhere when who does she see but the very same rhino that gored her baby to death a year earlier. So you know what happens? She goes and sits on the rhino - crushes him to death right there. Isn't that kind of amazing? Yeah, so apparently elephants are.. really, really big.
Actually this reminds me of something I was reading.. Did you know there's a whole history of people using elephants to execute people? All over the world - well, where ever elephants are available - people have been doing this for over 4000 years. Isn't that weird? ..I was just surprised that elephants also do this in the wild, as in the case of that rhino.
