Elephants in Drumshanbo!!

In Animals on July 5, 2012 at 6:17 pm

Imagine my shock as I drove through Drumshanbo, our nearest town, yesterday, when my eye was caught by some large animals in the Market Yard. As I screeched to a halt…I realised I¬†was’nt wandering in some crazy dream. There were 5 elephants to be seen!

Yes! You’ve guessed it…a Circus had come to town for 2 days. Now I’m not a big fan of Zoos or Circuses but these Elephants were beautiful.

One could’nt help but stop and admire their beauty. Gaze into that little eye within such a huge body and wonder…are they happy…are they well treated?

They drew quite a crowd. People were stopping, looking, rushing home for the children, taking pics or rushing to get their cameras. The Elephants seemed to enjoy the attention and they put a smile on everyone’s face. I did wonder about the safety issues but who am I to spoil the fun.

What big feet they’ve got!

That poo would be great for the garden!

Some people got close enough to feed them. The shops did ok as all the kids were running off to get Apples and Bananas for the Elephants. So there you have it…the day the Elephants came to Drumshanbo. I won’t be attending the Circus but I did enjoy getting so close to these beautiful creatures.
