  1. Are we surprised? Elephants warn each other about us and escape to the hills; the scent of mankind causes them to go into ‘fight or flight’ mode, which probably makes them less sensitive temporarily to pain, as it does in us. We’re a world menace!!!!

  2. Ha! This cartoon and a lot of the posts remind me of that song “Pets” – a part of the lyrics:

    Much faster than they
    Ever did.”
