We all know that people adore little animals and think they are cute. And it is only natural that bigger animals think of people as being sweet little creatures who want a bit of petting. Well, maybe from elephants' point of view we all look like golden retriever puppies - so they want to play with us every day!
This little elephant definitely wants to play with its human friends and wants some hugs as well, but the young man is a bit concerned: of course, the kid is very friendly, but it is a real elephant, and it is way heavier than a kitten or a puppy.
Dogs are smart and strong, and sometimes can be extremely talented, showing off unusual skills and abilities. Of course, given their paws, it's unlikely any of them will prove to be a dab hand at the guitar or the piccolo. But their extremely sensitive ears means they have a good sense of rhythm helping them to sing along with human stars.
One can hardly call this a soft landing. It could have been worse though. The incident took place during an air show when there were plenty of people hanging around watching what was going on. Fortunately, no one was injured.
When arranging a family trip, the first thing to do is get a vehicle, because who knows how far the road may take you. This time, however, the journey ended before it began. The poor bears never even had a chance to get inside the car.
