Elephant Christmas Tree Recycling

At the Berlin Zoo in Germany, this is how they recycle their Christmas trees. They feed their elephants discarded Christmas trees thrown away by residents as well as unsold trees from vendors. I don't think I've ever seen an animal eat a whole tree, have you? It's a great idea. American zoos should try this too. Found here.

Lol. I would think the evergreen would be hard to digest. It's a great idea if elephants like them.

The baby elephant in the previous post is precious.
