Amazing! Copenhagen, Denmark, is buying the last 4 elephants in the country to give them the proper retirement they deserve! Denmark is spending 11 million kroner (or $1.6 million) to make this retirement happen!

As a ban on wild animals in circuses is expected later this year, Food and Fisheries Minister Mogens Jensen said there's no immediate plans as to where they're going to put the newly retired, but applicants are willing to take the gentle giants and provide them proper welfare. Until then, Animal Protection Denmark will be taking care of them.

Benny Berdino, Circus Arena manager, said he was "sad to have to say goodbye" to its elephants, but mostly happy they would get a good retirement.

This Dolphin Turned a Jellyfish Into a Beanbag

These gents were enjoying a nice day on the water when they saw a sight that they and most everyone will never see again. A dolphin entered the bay near these Danish sailors, and they watched and followed as it literally threw and caught the jellyfish in the air. At one point it even lost the living beanbag, but soon found it and continued on with its game. Pretty sure PETA will file a complaint against the dolphin for animal cruelty, but it's unlikely to get very far between the judge's guffaws.

Check out the full story of this juggling dolphin, and find out exactly the Danes had to say about the whole experience.
