An Elephant That Never Forgets... TO KILL

I wasn't sure if I should file this under 'funny' or 'serious'... after careful reflection (I thought about it for 30 seconds), I decided to go with funny, because what the fuck?

At first glance, Zoo elephant tramples boy to death doesn't sound very funny, but some 13 year old kid got past a rock wall and two metal fences to feed a mango to an elephant. While probably a pretty horrible way to die, you have to wonder what the fuck this kid was thinking as he scaled three barriers with a piece of fruit in order to feed an elephant 120 times his own weight.

I don't want to say he deserved it, but, after the second fence you'd think he'd stop to say "hmm, maybe these barriers are here for a reason". I'm starting to think funny shit may not be the best category, but I don't feel like rewriting the first paragraph, so it's staying! Don't fuck with elephants.
