The joy of dancing In sprinklers!
It looks like an elephant living our her days at Elephant Nature Park enjoys breaking the sprinkler system to create her own fountain.
The young female elephant, Faa Sai was reportedly rescued from a life of abuse and now lives at the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Faa Sai was reportedly rescued from a life of captivity after living in chains, before being taken to the sanctuary.
When she got to the sanctuary, she was said to be ‘aggressive and angry’ and couldn’t walk properly because her legs had been chained together for so long.

According to the Daily Mail, Faa Sai has been breaking sprinklers for a while now.
The Elephant Nature Park said that while other elephants are off swimming in the river, Faa Sai has chosen to do things a little differently.
The park added that the sprinkler pressure in the field was ‘not strong enough’ for the young elephant – so she continually breaks the pipe by kicking it and then makes her own fountain.
Elephant Nature Park is an elephant rescue and rehabilitation center in Northern Thailand where people can volunteer. They have been involved in dozens of rescues which ultimately created their thriving elephant herd. The park provides a natural environment for elephants, dogs, cats, buffaloes and many other animals under their care.
