These incredible pictures make it abundantly evident that this elephant does not litter when it picks up trash and discards it. It reveals that the enormous mammal, who is impacted by more than simply flies, decided to take action on its own to defend the ecosystem.
An elephant is shown wandering through a garden in Sᴏᴜᴛʜ Aғʀɪᴄᴀ’s Greater Kruger National Park before stopping to check out some empty cans that were left on the ground. The elephant rushes to the rubbish, carefully scooping up each can with its trunk one at a time before using one of its feet to help drop it into a nearby trash can.
Before picking up the cans, it also seems to have dropped some rubbish that it had earlier discovered in the bushes. The first is rather easy to drop in, while the second can be a little trickier.
The elephant’s foot first takes a solid hold of the can before releasing it and tossing it to the ground. The can is successfully placed in the trash, which is excellent because the ғɪɢʜᴛ to maintain the ɢʀᴀss clean must continue.
Following the installation of CCTV cameras to monitor which animals frequented the area, photographer Russell Owen MacLaughlin from Hoedspruit, Sᴏᴜᴛʜ Aғʀɪᴄᴀ, was able to capture the incredible encounter. Russell claimed that the elephant merely went and picked up some cans and disposed of them.
