Dondi Does Dumbo

September 30th, 2007 · 1 Comment

We caught Dondi the Elephant at the Dumbo Art Under the Bridge Festival yesterday. We were transfixed. Dondi is a very, very smart creature and pretty darned cute too. Someone asked the guy who lays down under her at the end of the vid if he was afraid to do so, and he said, “I trust this elephant more than any person.” Watch Dondi in Dumbo.

    Elephants are family oriented and dependent on others(elephants). I’m appalled that these large animals are still used for human amusement. This cute elephant shouldn’t be performing stupid human tricks and was probably chained up at the end of the day

    They should be in the wild where they belong not some street in Brooklyn.
