Elphie Selfie

Events manager Scott Brierley definitely has a photo like no other. On a recent visit to the West Midlands Safari Park in Worcestershire, England, Brierley accidentally dropped his iPhone out the car window as he and friend drove through the elephant zone.

“The elephant was all over it—I think he thought it was food,” said Brierley. “I didn’t dare get out the car to get it. I just drove to one of the workers I could see and he went to get it.”

When staff returned his iPhone, Brierley realized that 22-year-old elephant Latabe had accidentally taken a selfie on it, using her trunk.

Head keeper Andy Plumb said: “Lots of people have dropped their phones at our park but I’ve never seen anything like this. What a picture—we’re very proud of Latabe.”

The 200-acre West Midlands Safari Park opened to the public in April 1973.
