So, just to be upfront, clearly this elephant did not think to itself, “oh dear, there’s some litter, I’d better pick it up.” If you’re observant, it’s also pretty obvious that this is not a real security camera. Still, it’s pretty impressive for any animal to perform the trick this one did. The folks at Thornhill Safari Lodge thought so. When they saw this video on a YouTube channel called privateicams, they shared it with their fans. It almost immediately went viral, not just because it was a clever animal trick, but for the message attached to it.
“If they can do it, why can’t we?”
