Just wondering how the elephant found her the second time and did he realize it was the same person the second time. And why that woman?

Pretty sure elephants have good memory. Highly intelligent and majestic creatures. Not entirely sure how he found her corpse though!

Apparently an elephant with a grudge, and a memory like an elephant, can be very dangerous?   I wonder what the old girl did to deserve such treatment!?  I think the elephant might know something we don’t .  :P

That woman must have hurt him a quite badly, so a poor animal is taking his revenge on her now.

It does seem like there was something personal between this woman and the elephant. Why would it return to her funeral?

Elephants also have an excellent sense of smell.

What a bizarre story !   The story called it a Wild elephant?  … makes me wonder!  So, just as a wild plot for this mystery story…How about her son killed this elephant’s loved one..and the elephant sensed the family link…or something equally weird.   :lol:     It was a clear case of  Justifiable old ladycide your Honor!

Me too. What if this elephant was actually captive and abused by the woman' husband or son, or even her, and escaped. It would remember. Going back to attack her again, to me anyway, sounds like an act of revenge.

I remember hearing or reading a story of elephants taking revenge out on poachers, especially for people that they connect to killing their babies, but I can't remember the details.

This story reminded me of the movie "Orca", but I doubt it's the same thing.
