That looked like it hurt.

That does not look good at all. It really looks like the elephant was just playing.

I couldn't get the video to load right at work, but without seeing it my guess would be that it was. If an elephant wants you dead, you are dead.

Glad he's ok. His arm must be really hurting.

Maybe the elephant overheard him singing Living Doll

I'd rather see Anderson Cooper get an elephant 360.

Jeff Corwin wrote a short piece about it - basically chalked it up to young elephants being playful but not knowing their own strength. Nothing broken, possible muscle damage, though.

That didn't look as bad as I thought it was going to be when I clicked on this thread, but I'm sure it still hurt like hell. The elephant was obviously only playing. Believe me, if an elephant wants to kill you, it doesn't just wrap it's trunk around you and swing you around a bit. When we lived in rural Namibia, someone who stayed near us got trampled to death by an elephant while he was out in the bush. Elephants are beautiful animals, but very dangerous.
