Orphaned Baby Elephants Learn How To Play Soccer At Orphanage in Nairobi

Orphaned baby elephants learn how to play soccer with their human keepers at the the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi, Kenya.

WITH their back-heel tricks and ability to slow a game down in an instant, these footballing ‘Pele-phants’ are in love with the beautiful game. The orphan elephants play football as part of their playtime at a specialist nursery in Nairobi, Kenya. And some are now even to perform minor tricks with the ball, according to Julius Letoiya, staff keeper at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust facility.
