Elephant Kicks the Habit

A five-year old bull Elephant who was controlled by kidnappers using heroin-laced bananas has completed rehab and is on his way home.

Poachers took the elephant and fed him bananas spiked with heroin to keep him controlled. When rescued, experts noted he was suffering withdrawals and sent him to a wildlife refuge which injected him with methadone 5x more powerful than that given humans for a year.

The elephant, named Big Brother, should arrive home Saturday.
