The Herd of Elephants in China Head Home

In the News

The 14 strong elephants that have made an epic journey lasting 17 months are almost home. I know China has had a lot of bad press but this is a feel good news item and these elephants have been protected during their journey.

We all need some good news.

Yes the Chinese have been feeding them to stop the elephants from wrecking harvests.

Pjran Yes nothing quite so bad as a marauding heffalump with a sweet tooth lol. In London Zoo they wrecked elephant teeth by over feeding them sticky buns.

MelissaLee1963 I didn’t know that. The Chinese were filmed with trucks of food including bananas and no sticky bun in sight.

Pjran Fruit is definitely a better option. Wish I could abide by the same rules myself lol. In Thailand they have a festival of elephants. Here they are eating fruit. Image

Pjran I went on an elephant ride in Goa.I felt sorry for the elephant because I am no light weight.He snuck down into a water pool and blasted someone on another nearby elephant. I thought he was going to submerge in the muddy water but I got out unscathed .

MelissaLee1963 you’re braver than me. I chickened out because the place we were taken to wasn’t well organised, not Goa though.

My mouth spoke before my brain engaged and I couldn't back down.I wasn't brave enough to get on a hissing camel in Egypt though.Chickened out then.
