It seems that elephants are known to be very smart creatures. They have the tendency to care for humans even when they are not supposed to. They have aided humans who are hurt. They also have the tendency to bury humans that are already dead. They will not kill humans unless they are provoked or the human being is in the way. It is not usually the intention of elephants to kill.

The animal that has killed a lot of humans year after year is mosquitoes because of the many diseases that they carry and other human beings who have murdered or killed other humans. It would be unfair for elephants to be judged when there are other animals that can actually kill human beings.
