While the world continues to be shocked and disgusted by the death of Cecil the lion, there are some other pleasant animal stories going on.

This is one of those pleasant stories. It's simple, really. A baby elephant in South Africa's Kruger National Park busies himself by chasing some birds.

As the video description reminds us:

With this week being so sad after the loss of a great animal, Cecil the lion, we thought we would cheer everyone up with a video that will make you cry of happiness, rather than sadness."

It looks like the elephant was in the right place at the right time to remind us of the wonder out there in the wild and the innocent enjoyment we can all get from watching it.

Of course, this isn't the only unlikely pairing of animals that you wouldn't expect to hang out. Check out this kangaroo and dog mixing it up:
