Big Mary

Somewhere in the rail yards of Erwin, Tennessee the bones of Big Mary rest - a sore point for the little town, a part of its history the residents would rather soon forget. But for Mary, wherever she is now, there is a certainty, an absolute that is definite despite all conjecture and oral history: Big Mary will never, ever forget.
The utterly bizarre story of an elephant that was executed by hanging at meine kleine fabrik.

  1. I think Mary got pissed and stomped a mudhole in her (mis)handler.

    They could have at least given her a blindfold and a cigarette.
