Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Cats and dogs can be expensive to take care of, they come with house restrictions, require a lot of commitment to train them on how to go about routines, and have a destructive personality.
Now imagine the time, effort and commitment one would have to put in to train an elephant to go about the same routine as a human being.
Well, one albino elephant identified as Khanyisa proved just how easy it can be to tame an elephant and train them to do some task.
The beautiful little albino calf was captured in a video while carefully playing with a shovel at The Herd Elephant Orphanage in South Africa.
In the 40 seconds clip, Khanyisa can be seen holding the shovel using its trunk and attempting to dig up soil from the ground before it falls down.
An adorable Khanyisa then tries to lift the spade this time round coordinating her trunk and feet to position it.
Appearing comfortable and happy at the orphanage, the albino elephant has a sad history in which she almost lost her life.
Khanyisa was found trapped in a hunting snare and was severely injured after she attempted to pull herself free during which the snare only tightened around her.
She arrived at the sanctuary at the beginning of January 2020. It was estimated she was around 4-months-old at the time.
The orphanage worked hard to help her as she settled in and thrived in their care.
The Herd Elephant Orphanage has been welcoming to any orphaned elephants that need a family structure.
In another report, a mother who appeared to have been tired of being worried by her son decided to give him a task of counting a bowl of rice so she can have time to rest amid the lockdown exercise.
The video was sighted by YEN.com.gh on the official Instagram handle of Celebritiesbuzzgh and it is not clear the exact location where it was recorded.
In the video, the mother carefully instructed the young innocent boy to use the counting skills he was taught in class to execute the task for her whilst she goes to the room and "lies down" waiting for him.
