"An elephant trainer at Six Flags Marine World in Vallejo was in critical condition Tuesday after he was gored by one of the pachyderms, a fire department spokesman said. Patrick Chapple, 39, was standing next to 7,000-pound Misha, a 23-year-old female African elephant, at about 3:30 p.m. when the animal turned suddenly from grazing and knocked him to the ground. When paramedics arrived, the 39-year-old man was suffering from a penetrating wound to the abdomen, but was alert and talking... 'All the way through,' [Vallejo Fire Department spokesman William Tweedy] said of the injury."
