Elephant sips from jacuzzi

The mystery of a jacuzzi that was continuously draining was solved — an elephant did it. The female elephant nicknamed Troublesome by rangers was caught on camera by a guest at Etali Safari Lodge. Prior to this discovery, staff and owners had spent weeks trying to find out what was the cause of the mystery leak. Elephants can drink up to 200 liters of water per day, though they typically prefer clean water over jacuzzi water.
