It must have been influenced by the Israelis around it.

Maybe the US will start sending the the elephant foreign aid and arms now?

That is creepy to find out Israel had a hand in it. I thought it was going to be a story out of Africa. Anywise, its a bad omen for someone.

Could the elephant have been in musth? The musth can be defined as a periodical change of the behaviour of elephant bulls, which can last from some weeks up to some months. This change has got hormonal reasons. In the musth period a bull produces 40 to 60 times more of testosterone (male sex hormone) than in the non-musth time.

It is not right not to bring the bull into contact with the female elephant during its musth. The risk that the musth bull could attack the cows because they annoy it for any reason is too big. The fact that the musth bull cannot be controlled by the elephant keepers and the very cramped conditions in a zoo would give the cows and the elephant calves no chance to get out of danger.

If so, they should press charges against Yanni as well. I hate that fricken music.
