Elephants learn to play footie!

South Africa is not only full of people with footie fever!

Elephant trainers at the Knysna park are teaching the animals to play the game!

They are hoping it will help make them better friends!

The trainers say the elephants are fast learners and its only taken a couple of days for them to learn how to pass the ball back and forth to each other and tackle their keepers.
