  6. Manhunt On For Utter Monsters Who Killed An Entire Family Of Elephants In Kenya

    In news that would make for a solid first act of a Disney movie if it wasn't already the sad, horrible truth, Kenyan authorities are trying to find a team of poachers who killed an entire family of elephants in Kenya's Tsavo East National Park. In what's being described as the worst incident of poaching in Kenya's long history -- which isn't exactly short on horrific incidents of poaching -- a family of 11 elephants was slaughtered by what police believe to be a 10-person strong gang of poachers who escaped with the elephants' hacked off tusks, which will likely be shipped off to foreign markets to make trinkets, baubles, and pieces of jewelry from the ivory.

  10. Zookeepers Order Booze For Elephants, Zookeepers Drink Booze For Elephants

    Heffalumps and Woozles

    Here's a funny story for your late afternoon enjoyment: Zookeepers in Pakistan regularly purchase alcohol for the zoo's elephants for when the animals get a little keyed up during mating season. Or so they claimed. For twenty years. If that isn't funny enough for you to begin with, try this one: Someone thought it was strange that elephants were basically being "prescribed" booze, so they asked a veterinarian, "Hey, can elephants drink booze?" And the vet said, "No, elephants cannot drink booze. God, I hope they haven't been drinking booze." Don't worry! The elephants never drank any of the booze. It was for the zookeepers, who bogarted all that elephant-relegated booze for all those years.
