Rival teams of elephants take to the field during the weekend at Nepal’s annual Chitwan national Park Soccer match. During the thirty minute match, adult an baby elephants competed against each other, facing off, kicking the ball and scoring goals.

The elephants that play in the game are locally varied at a breeding center in Sauraha with banners acting as uniforms. The elephants trudged through the field of play while the crowd cheered them on.

“Oh it was incredible, It was absolutely incredible. Ther were running around, they were pooping on the field, they scored goals, the small elephant was really cute,” Spectator going by the name of “Pineaple” told reporters. Viewers soon realized this was not going to be a fast-paced game, even though the elephants did score a goal.

Likewise the Dutch student mentioned the he really liked, specially the big elephants who scored and at the same time he questioned us either we saw that score or not.

Nepal has about three hundred elephants and one hundred elephants are local. Elephants of Nepal are protected by law. If someone is convicted of killing one, they could be sentenced 10 15 years in jail.
