Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A zoo worker in Spain died when an elephant hit him with her trunk, throwing him against the bars of her enclosure, local officials confirmed.

Joaquin Gutierrez Arnaiz, aged 44, was hit by a 4,000-kilogram (4.4-ton) female African elephant in Cabarceno Natural Park in Cantabria, northern Spain, on Wednesday.

Guttierez Arnaiz was rushed to the Marques de Valdecilla University Hospital, where he died from his injuries.

At the time of the accident, staff were cleaning the elephants' compound.

Local police, the Civil Guard and the zoo are investigating the incident.

Karma is a b****.  Animals don't belong in cages.

That was shown in the UK too. It's a good commercial, elephants never forget.
