Click on the story, please, and check it out if you have a couple of minutes. The elephants pair up in a sort of huge buddy system, and one of them wound up with a buddy who is decidedly non-elephantine.
Funny thing about animals, non-domestic variety. You see them roaming around the neighborhood and they are having a really good time. Just recently, here at the Lazy 'C' Ranch, we had a family of wrens nest for a while and fly off with their new hatchlings, and then a mama rabbit dug a little pit in the mulch beneath the crabapple tree, and within days, four little Bugs Bunnies were the darlings of the neighborhood. None of these animals have internet access, high-fructose corn syrup, or Pat Robertson's maniacal bleatings in their lives.
And they are better off for it!

But keep this Butler quote in mind also..
"Man is the only animal that laughs, and has a state legislature."
And think of how happy that squirrel who just ran down your street is about that!
