News Item:  Six elephants have died in a waterfall in Thailand's Khao Yai Naitonal Park trying to save each other from drowning.  

You'd think humans had more sense ...

Why don't they put a fence here?

You'd think so.  It would stop a slip and fall into that treacherous ravine.

Perhaps we can build our own barrier ...

That's an idea.  We can break some heavy branches off and pile them up.

Yes, and I think I can roll some big boulders over.

Yes, that'll do nicely.

You know this is a lot of work -- but the boulders are looking good ...

And so is the fence with the thick branches.

That should stop anyone from falling in.

It should.

You know what I fear ...


Those human park rangers are going to show up ...

I know what you are thinking ...  They will say, "Who littered this place?"  And remove
it all.

Unless we find some giant boulders they can't move that easily.

Why are humans so dumb?

It's a shame ... just look at the planet ...
