Pretty sure this is all just pre-fight hype for Dingo Vs. Jumbo.

Having Jumbo do a heel turn at all was the worst storyline The WWF ever pulled.

Maybe its on a rampage because someone shot it's young one.

farking poachers need to die horribly.

This sounds like an origin story. Someone keep an eye on that kid.

is this picture the one in the article? why are the chains around the elephants legs and then running off to the pole in the background. Story is B.S

I did, in fact, laugh out loud at this.

I'm sure they mean "alleged killer elephant," or maybe India has very lax libel laws.

uh..nobody

Usually it is because it wants sexy time.

He's just pissed at the houses, not the people.

If we stopped pissing off the elephants, maybe they'd stop knocking over our stuff.

Just let them be.

Let us invent the rumor that cockroaches are more powerful than tiger dong/Elephant tusks/rhino horn.

well, maybe that is how elephants cast their vote.

The elephant in the picture is all chained up.  Why would it "return to the forest" while in chains?  Why was it in the forest in chains in the first place?  Doesn't make sense.
 
2014-03-12 04:29:56 PM
I can't help but say, elephants are ridiculously cute animals.
Enormous, cute animals.

How about you free the animal and maybe it'll stop trying to hurt people.
 
2014-03-12 04:40:21 PM
Here's the original story.

And then there's this killer elephant:

I once saw a video of an elephant grooving along to music played on a piano.  That pachyderm's hips were moving.  You can't tell me that animal was not into the music.

Humans give far too little credit to animal intelligence.

How do they know that it was moving debris to save the crying child and not moving debris so it could stamp it to death? Seems like an enraged elephant would be more likely to do the latter. Probably just got distracted or startled before it could finish.
 
2014-03-12 05:00:27 PM
Elephant watching too many Gamera films? Trash the town, kill tons of people, but stop to save (and befriend) a child?
 
2014-03-12 05:01:16 PM
if you set the fire and then put it out.....you are not the hero!!!

Because it could have just stamped on the debris. It's an elephant. If it wanted to stamp a baby to death it wouldn't take more than one stamping. They ain't small.

Didn't we just have a Farticle* that said elephants can distinguish adults from children and can recognize a threat [person] by the language he [the person] speaks?

Funny anyone needs an anatomy lesson on sour patch kids. Up until about 5 years ago, they had two on the back of the box humping like there's no tommorow.
 
2014-03-12 05:20:26 PM
what's the fail? not killing the child?

TIL Indians call elephants "Tuskers". No wonder the poor guy went on a rampage!

To all the farkers who asked about the photo. No, thats not the elephant in the story. He ran into the forest. That photo is there in case anyone reading a newspaper or watching tv or BREATHING! doesn't know what a ephelent looks, like, like. So there.

Elephants are pretty smart animals. A lot smarter than a number of folks that would go "It's just a dern dumb critter that ain't speakin American! Shoot it!"

Actually, we're pretty certain that if any animals are candidates for sentience, elephants are among them. They have "spindle cells" in their brains, and these are present only in great apes, some whales and dolphins, and humans. They are known to be a factor in self-awareness. Elephants have friends, form cliques, have emotional outbursts, fight to preserve their lives and the lives of those they hold dear, and show compassion. They can recognize themselves in a mirror (a standard test for self-awareness) and mourn their dead very much as we do.

Just like humans, when you take away their land and food, they get angry and scared. Adolescent elephants are prone to bursts of violence because they feel threatened. Older elephants tend to get violent only when they are abused or directly threatened. They also seem to know they're much stronger than we are and that they can hurt us easily, and older, wiser elephants are known to show caution when close to humans (and other small creatures) because, it is believed, they feel a sense of responsibility.

They may not be fully sentient, but they definitely have real emotions and are very obviously self-aware and capable of understanding mortality more like a human does, rather than as most animals do.

That's okay. Elephants call Indians "cowf*ckers", so it's all good.
