Could you elaborate on that? I does look surprisingly clean when he digs it out of the excrement.. Not to mention it works too-Hah
When the elephant grabs the phone you can see that it raises its trunk upward. When its trunk comes back into view the phone is already gone. @ .35
seconds, I think the elephant hands the phone to the trainer who is riding him.
Second reason I believe it's fake. Elephants are very smart and have an excellent sense of smell and their trunks are sensitive like our fingers. I
highly doubt an elephant would confuse a phone for food.
The women decide to wait for the elephant to poop out the phone. That would have taken a long time, maybe days. After the edit, they run toward the
pile of dung. But her reaction when the phone is found seems staged.
Everything about this video screams hoax IMO.
