It’s a little hard find light news these days, so we’ll start with heavy news instead. In short, we need to talk about the elephant in the room. Actually, it’s an elephant out of the room. Liwonde National Park is overcrowded. Kasungu Park has plenty of space. But since the two parks are more than 200 miles apart, it takes a mammoth effort to move 250 proboscideans from one park to the other. How do you move 250 elephants to their new home? Very carefully. Luckily, the elephants were transported by truck. Given the air travel horror stories this summer, taking a plane would have risked losing a trunk.

+ CBS News: A baby elephant was dramatically rescued from a manhole in central Thailand this week after its mother was sedated to allow the operation to proceed.
