On Friday afternoon, a 25-year-old guy named Jose Navarrete jumped a bunch of barriers at the San Diego Zoo to get into an elephant habitat. And . . . he brought his two-year-old with him.
Once they got inside, an elephant ROARED and actually CHARGED at them.
Jose ducked through a gate to get away from the elephant . . . and DROPPED his toddler in the process. The elephant wound up getting just a few inches from her before Jose was able to grab her.
Fortunately, no people or elephants got hurt . . . but Jose was arrested on Saturday for child cruelty.
