The elephant with a flair for soccer

An African elephant is proving a league champion for her ability to keep her keepers on their toes. Fifteen-year-old Latabe is so adept at dribbling a football she is more than a match for her keeper at West Midland Safari Park in Worcestershire.
Keeper Lewis Hodson, 23, is passionate about football and the pair first started to kick a ball around during playtime four weeks ago. A park spokesman said: "There is little doubt that Latabe is honing her footy skills to perfection and seems to enjoy every minute that she is on the pitch."
There's a news video here.
