Soccer Playin’ Elephants


Pelé the Elephant led the charge as his football team gave a performance to remember in Nepal yesterday. Elephant soccer wowed the crowds at the Sauraha National Park as part of Nepal’s Elephant Festival. The festival is an annual event aimed at raising awareness for wildlife conservation. Other games over the period included an elephant race and an elephant beauty contest… ‘People get the message all over the world that an animal which is very difficult to train in the household is playing soccer for the entertainment of the people.” w/ photos + video
