    Elephant 'swallows' tourist's iPhone

    Elephant 'swallows' tourist's iPhone
    Published: 28/12/2012 at 11:03 AMOnline news: Local News


    A Thai elephant appears to have swallowed a Chinese visitor's iPhone while she was taking pictures of her friend feeding bananas to the animal at a tourist spot. The phone was later recovered from the elephant's dung, or so it seems in a video that has gone viral on the web.

    The incident, at an unidentified elephant camp in Thailand, was conveniently filmed by a third person. But some netizens are not convinced by the video and think it was staged.

    According to some sceptics, the smart phone swallowed by the elephant is not the same as the phone later found in its dung heap, while others suggest the people in the video were acting a part.

    Some said the elephant's keeper probably took the iPhone out of its mouth and later hid it in the pooh pile.

    Another suspected the elephant passed the phone up to the mahout sitting on its head.

    Judge for yourself. The video link is below.

    Looks about as real as that eagle that picked up the baby.

    Funny, but very suspicious. I highly doubt it's real.

    How long does it take food to go through an elephant?
