I was once southeast of Bologna - right next to the cheese and Miracle Whip.

I'm kinda sorry now that I wrote the fun post above..

when I read the story, in full -
made me sad,

as I often think, when we see stories
like this or ...'elephant breaks free - goes berserk'.

I sometimes think,
they are ill treated in the circus and
it's their way of
trying to get away or escape.

Poor unfortunate creatures.

animals hear sounds we can't so outside noise can affect animal behavior

the run the stress the shock and a bad sedative ended her life.

I used to run a muck. But the recession put me out of business.

This was a carefully executed plan by all the animals. While they were chasing the giraffe the other animals escaped for an hour and were seen dining on linguine carbonarra and drinking fine wine.
