Security Camera Captures Elephant Helping The Environment. When People See The Footage Their Jaws Drop

October 03, 2017

Animals tend to surprise us with unexpected habits and behaviors. Sometimes it’s a hidden talent, and other times it’s the fact that they like things a certain way and they are sure to let us know it. Such is the case with one large elephant when he is having lunch one afternoon and notices something out of place.

This elephant is picking some choice leaves off a tall tree. The weather is pleasant, and the gentle giant doesn't seem to have a care in the world. Then, the elephant looks to his right and notices that someone has left litter on the ground. Well, he can't just let that slide, can he?

The elephant makes his way over to where the trash is lying and, amazingly, starts cleaning it up. Using his foot to trap the trash in his trunk, he picks up the pieces of garbage and, one at a time gently places them in the trash receptacle. Once the area is free of litter, the elephant goes about his business as usual. I think we could all learn something from this environmentally-friendly elephant! Watch the video, below, to see the adorable footage for yourself.
