The trunk is quicker than the eye
Apparently, there are some elephants in Denver
who believe they were not meant to live on peanuts
alone. Three Asian elephants at the city zoo there
have been using their trunks to grab items - such
as sunglasses and handbags - from unsuspecting
spectators and then eating the goods. Zoo Director
Clayton Freiheit said the animals usually have little
difficulty devouring the confiscated material.
"They've got big, huge teeth. The grinding surface
is like the size of a brick, so they can chew up some
petty heavy stuff," he said. To correct the problem,
zoo officials announced Wednesday that they want
to spend $90,000 to build a ten-foot moat around the
elephants, replacing the present six-foot water
barrier. Maybe the animals aren't to blame; there
are many federal employees in Washington who will
tell you that elephants aren't the only ones fed up
with peanuts.
Driving conditions are just
City_ employees and State Police blocked off "a

freeway for eight hours in Detroit Thursday in order
to avoid a real traffic jam. A semitrailer truck
which overturned on the Chrysler Expressway
dumped its cargo of peaches along extended areas
of north and southbound lanes. No one was injured
in the accident. One spectator said the incident was
positive proof that Michigan highways are the pits.
Man will bite dogs
A "Committee to save the Puppy Nine" may soon
be needed to protect dogs in Bay City. Frederick
Dehn, 72, joked Thursday that he would use the
$75,004 he won in the Michigan Lottery to buy a set
of false teeth so he could nibble on dogs which often
bother him on his morning walks. "I'll bite the little
dogs once, the big dogs twice," Dehn said. A
reliable source reported that Dehn was among those
in the running for the lead role in the upcoming
horror film, "Teeth."
On the Outside ...
Just when it looked like old Thad the Thunder
Bumper had skipped town for a while, he's come
back to bid us weekend greetings. Thad
will do his thing today under cloudy skies and a
temperature of 82, then make a quick emergency,
leaving behind partly cloudy skies and a low of 60.
Tomorrow will be a great improvement, with par-
tly sunny skies and a high of 78.
