This is the baby Elephant Otto from the Munich Tierpark Hellabrunn. He loves nothing more than to cuddle with his dad, a gorgeous bull elephant with huge tusks. Dad Gajendra is temporarily separated, most likely because he's in Musth (must), meaning his Testosterone levels can be more than 60 times higher than in the same elephant at other times which could make him highly aggressive, but he's certainly not aggressive with his son Otto today as he's being very affectionate. The little baby elephant cuddles dad's tusks. Throwing his little trunk around it. Dad's big trunk wrapped around his son's head and touches the rest of him. The elephant calf runs towards the big tire has a little play. In the background you hear mother Temi slapping her ears against a metal door. It's time to go outside. When the little one finishes with the tire he runs back to dad and cuddles into his Dad's big tusks again. Just look at him run, just so cute. He runs towards the tire again but makes a quick turn to go to dad. When dad shows his leg, the baby does the same and lifts us his little leg and puts it on dad's leg. Otto was born on the 11th of November 2020 during the lockdown of the covid19 pandemic. His mum is called Temi and his dad is called Gajendra. He's a little cutie, very playful and loves learning from the adults.

A British Columbia judge has overturned orders evicting people living at a homeless encampment in downtown Vancouver park, a decision law experts and advocates say could carry precedent and lessons for Halifax. In a ruling delivered last week at the Supreme Court of British Columbia, Justice Matthew Kirchner concluded the Vancouver Park Board was not justified in issuing the eviction orders on July 8 and Sept. 7 of last year. The judge's reasons included the board's lack of notice to park reside

WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Bernie Sanders suggested Tuesday that he'd support primary challengers against Democratic colleagues Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema, further intensifying a political battle pitting members of President Joe Biden's party against one another.

MELBOURNE (Reuters) -An Australian court said on Thursday it dismissed tennis superstar Novak Djokovic's challenge to his visa cancellation as the minister who revoked it reasonably believed Djokovic, who is not vaccinated against COVID-19, may be a risk to the community. The Federal Court also rejected the argument there was no evidence that Djokovic had ever urged anyone not to get vaccinated, saying it was open to infer that the public would perceive that he was opposed to vaccinations, since he said he had not been vaccinated. Djokovic's saga has fuelled global debate over the rights of people who opt not to get vaccinated as governments look to protect the community from the coronavirus pandemic.
