    Man Takes 2-Year Old Into Elephant Enclosure


    "A father has been arrested on suspicion of child endangerment after he carried his 2-year-old daughter into the elephant habitat at the San Diego Zoo to take a photograph with the animals.

    "The man bypassed multiple barriers and 'purposely and illegally trespassed' into a habitat for Asian and African elephants Friday afternoon, zoo spokesman Andrew James said.

    "A witness video...shows a man dropping the child as they flee the enclosure as a trumpeting elephant charged at them. The man picked up the toddler and was able to get her out safely.

    "Police said the 25-year-old man wanted to take a photo with the African bull elephant. James said the elephants were not harmed."

    I went about a year and a half ago and I don't think they had any male elephants at the time.

    No idea what good he thought would come about by doing that.


      these are the kind of people who get to reproduce, and people wonder why the world is so fucked up.


        Wondering what the idiot was thinking.

        I have a few theories though. Perhaps he thought the elephants were gentle, docile creatures. Maybe trained to be around people. Elephants are often portrayed that way on TV. So he just assumed it would be ok to break the boundaries and treat it like a petting zoo. He should be fined at the very least for his stupidity.

        The earful his wife gave him after this must’ve been punishment enough lol


          Stupid man finds out he's an idiot, and doesn't know what to do with a child, who will become Dumbo. More news at 7.
