Nepal Holds Elephant Soccer Match

| Filed under: ElephantsGameFunny

In Nepal, several soccer-playing elephants got together for a quick game of soccer, or as they call it, trunkball.

It was part of Nepal's three-day, elephant-themed festival to help promote conservation awareness and boost tourism.

The elephants trained for weeks and seemed to have a great time playing around.

"We hope that the elephant festival will help bring more tourists to Chitwan. We need both foreign and domestic visitors."

They're probably trying to bring back tourists ever since their ten-year insurgency from armed rebels killed more than 13,000 people.

Hopefully the elephants will help.

"Training the elephants to play soccer was not easy but they learned the basic command. They understood they need to hit the ball when I yell 'kick' at them."

And an elephant never forgets, so maybe they'll keep up the soccer and we'll have a Christiano Ronaldophant.

Sorry, that was bad. LOLz!
