Remorse

AnimalAnecdotes Home




An elephant, from some motive of revenge, killed his cornack, or
conductor. The man's wife, who beheld the dreadful scene, took her two
children, and threw them at the feet of the enraged animal, saying, "Since
you have slain my husband, take my life also, as well as that of my
children." The elephant instantly stopped, relented, and as if stung with
remorse, took up the eldest boy with his trunk, placed him on its neck,
adopted him for his cornack, and would never afterwards allow any other
person to mount it.
