Bob Norris was a cowboy, and he also played one on TV. But this former Marlboro Man set himself apart from the pack when he solved his midlife crisis by adopting an elephant named Amy. While Bob had a devoted wife and children and worked with horses, dogs and goats on his ranch in the Rockies, he had started to become disheartened and bored. For kicks, he rented out some of his barn stalls to house six orphan elephant babies taken from a herd in Africa and destined for zoos and circuses. He fell in love with the sickly yet beautiful Amy, and paid $18,000 to keep her.
