How to Help a Suffering Elephant
Soak the elephant's front feet
in washtubs of very warm water
to which 1/2 cup of baking soda has been added.
Speak gently and confidently.
When the water has cooled to room temperature
take one foot at a time out of the water
to gently trim any broken nails or debris.
Wrap the foot in a soft towel.
pull a really soft slipper sock
onto the foot.
Repeat this process
for the rear feet.
