Baby Elephant Throws a Little Fit When He Can’t Catch His Dog Friend
This video was uploaded a few years ago in 2014, but it continues to make its way around the internet gaining 2.6 million views. The clip was filmed at the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai, Thailand and features a baby elephant playfully chasing a little dog around in the lush green grass. The dog seems to be saying “you can’t catch me!” while the elephant plays along until it gets frustrated. Upset that its stubby legs can’t move fast enough to tag the pup, it picks up a bunch of sticks in its trunk and shakes them, acting out one of the cutest hissy fits the world has ever seen.
According to the Elephant Nature Park, their land provides “a sanctuary for dozens of distressed elephants from all over Thailand.” The staff takes care of cats, dogs, buffalo, and elephants, and visitors are welcome to come to the sanctuary to see the creatures in their relaxed habitat. Watch the video below to see the Elephant Nature Park and the relationship between baby elephant and playful pup. As YouTube commenter Handyjack points out, it looks like the elephant goes to tattle to its mom after the dog won’t play the way it wants!
