"LeBlanc's GoPro, a mountable sports camera, was set to shoot continuously, so it captured the view from the elephant's trunk. But he's not ruling out
the possibility that the beast knew what it was doing."
There was a similar story on the radio a while ago where it happened with monkeys. They were saying that the guy couldn't use the picture online or
anything because of copyright laws. Even though it was his camera, it was considered the monkey's property for taking the photo. Weird.
It always gets me that people don't think about the sheer power those animals have. You don't carry several tons of body weight without some
serious muscle to to do it with. No matter how intelligent they are or how beautiful and friendly they look, they are still wild animals.
A friend of ours was taking a pic with a park elephant in Thailand recently. She extended her finger and the elephant thought it was a piece of sugar
cane or something, bit it. The handler was standing by and issued a command to release, so she didn't loose the finger, but it sure did hurt.
