So many feels

Came across this in an email a while ago, hopefully this hasn't been posted before

In 1972, Joe Miller was on holiday in Kenya after graduating
from Tulsa Junior College "
On a hike through the bush, he came across a young bull
elephant standing with one leg raised in the air. The
elephant seemed distressed, so Joe approached it very
carefully. He got down on one knee, inspected the
elephants foot, and found a large piece of wood deeply
embedded in it. As carefully and as gently as he could,
Joe worked the wood out with his knife, after which the
elephant gingerly put down its foot.
The elephant turned to Joe, and with a rather cu nous look
on its face, stared at him for several tense moments. Joe
stood frozen, thinking of nothing else but being trampled.
Eventually the elephant trumpeted loudly, turned, and
walked away. Joe never forgot that elephant or the events
of that day,,
Thirty years later, Joe was walking through the Tulsa Zoo
with his family. As they approached the elephant enclosure,
one of the creatures turned and walked over to near where
Joe and his family were standing. The large bull elephant
stared at Joe, lifted its front foot off the ground, then put it
down. The elephant did that several times then trumpeted
loudly, all the while staring at the man.
Remembering the encounter in 1972, Joe could not help
wondering if this was the same elephant... Joe summoned
up his courage, climbed over the railing, and made his way
into the enclosure. He walked rig ht up to the elephant and
stared back in wonder. The elephant trumpeted again,
wrapped its trunk around one of Joe' s legs and slammed
him against the railing killing him instantly.
Probably wasn' t the same elephant.
This is for everyone who sends me those
******** stories.

ALTERNATE ENDING.

The elephant wrapped its trunk around Joe's legs and snapped them like twigs. The Zookeepers quickly tranquilized the animal and Joe lived, though he was crippled from the waist down. He decided to settle down with his wife in the friendly town of Quahog, Rhode Island.
