Any of you recall riding the elephants at the Audubon Zoo in the early 80's?
You could ride both elephants and camels. This memory just came back to me last night while watching a nature documentary. My wife called bull shite.

Americans today would crush those poor animals.

You could ride elephants at the BR zoo then also.

You can now go tell your wife you were RIGHT. Savor the victory while it lasts.

I'll gladly take the 'W', but a winning percentage of 0.019 is nothing worth bragging about.

They could put the elephants toward the back of the zoo, where the fat people are to tired to walk to.

I do remember riding them at the BR zoo. You used to also be able to feed them peanuts out of a cup.
I actually saved pennys for Buckskin Bill to buy the first elephant in BR.

I do. Didn't they also have a camel you could ride? I know I rode one at a zoo somewhere in either Baton Rouge or New Orleans.

I can't recall it but was assured those pictures were completely destroyed.

What a man does with an elephant is a private matter! Why dredge up the sordid past?

When I read this I had a flash in my head of sitting on a tortoise as a kid. The timing is about right for me.

Dude, back in the 80s we rode donkeys on the basketball court playing basketball in Jr high for a school function.
