Tucker the elephant would rather please trainer than make contact with club and spike.

Faux News (used affectionately) just reported on Tucker, a 3 year old baby elephant that is helping with zoo clean-up in hurricane ravaged Houston, Texas. Everyone was all smiles as the little dude lumbered along picking up large sticks and branches. One of the zookeepers commented that Tucker really enjoyed it and was eager to please. I wonder if his eagerness had anything to do with the unrelenting presence of the trainer standing within feet of him yielding a club with a spike on the end of it. Just wondering.

guess I should say that you can't see the spike from this photo but you could see it in the video.
