A good example of the wonders of other beings. This video is fascinating -nothing bad in it...nobody gets hurt! (hopefully kindness was used in teaching the elephant to do this) Sad for me, watching this and thinking how smart and feeling these beings are and how much we (humans) have tortured them. Gun shots where it takes them 6 months to die slowly (videos of this seared in my brain), one mourning over another shot and suffering, trying desperately to help it, never leaving its side. I can only hope that people seeing videos like this pleasant one would be more motivated to help elephants somehow.. Forward as you see fit!
