Poachers Beware – An Elephant Never Forgets{no comment}

They say an elephant never forgets, but what they don’t tell you is that this remarkable memory starts at a very early age. There was a special they showed on Cable.TV a while back that talked all about it. In the special, a man, recently retired, was standing outside of an elephant reservation. Suddenly, out of nowhere, one of the adult elephants charged him and killed him.

The incident was highly publicized. At the time, the event was horrifying and this seemingly unprovoked act of violence was terrifying. However, some background checks soon revealed who the victim was – a former poacher. It seems that the elephant’s mother had been killed by this poacher. While the poacher left the baby to fend for itself, it eventually was found and raised in the reservation.

All that time, the baby elephant never forgot the smell of his mother’s killer. And when the time came, the elephant got his revenge on his mother’s murderer.

Let that be a lesson to any would-be poachers out there thinking of turning their sights toward elephants. The old adage “an elephant never forgets” is based more in fact than you realize. At least one poacher learned firsthand the truth.
