My alert friends and readers are always making sure I’ve heard of all the stories of animals misbehaving around the world. These stories almost never disappoint, and this one is no exception!
A herd of about 15 asian elephants have been running amok in towns and farmlands in south Yunnan province, where most of the endangered elephants live. They don’t know why these elephants have gone on walk-about, and they are trying to find a suitable place for them to settle.
Of course, the intrepid roving reporter at ZooNooZ is on the scene!
We are in the midst of a heat wave here in the upper left coast! Temperatures in Seattle and Portlandia hit over 100, but here on a small island off in the Puget Sound, we have managed to stay below 100 (at 99) I hear there is not a fan to be found, or an air conditioner, so I am getting up close and personal with every ice pack in the freezer! Temperatures are predicted to drop over night, which will be a welcome relief!

I just love Bob T Panda trying to interview the rogue elephants in China. Elephants are my second favorite animal. after giant pandas of course. You have captured them so well here. The last panel is just perfect with all the elephants examining Bob all over with their trunks. He seems a bit intimidated, doesn’t he?
I have enjoyed watching the elephants interact with the two youngsters at the San Diego Safari Park. They really are amazing animals. There needs to be a movement to get them out of their product placement “endorsement” with the Rethuglicans. Elephants are caring, matriarchal, and intelligent, non of which applies to the GQP. It is an insult to elephants.
Also, elephants are curious, as Bob could tell you!
