THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM
A rather astonishing story comes from West Bengal, India. A killer elephant, said to have caused the death of a number of people, went charging into a village and started to knock down a house. A quantity of rubble started to fall on a baby and, when the elephant heard the crying of the infant, it walked away. Then the baby started crying again, so the elephant returned and, before the eyes of the child's astonished parents, proceeded to remove each piece of rubble from the baby with its trunk. It then returned to the wilderness.
