Elephant spotted on Florida beach

A woman reportedly asked the city commission back in February to sign off on having a trained elephant make an appearance for her 60th birthday.

City leaders apparently approved the request.

Beach goers watched the elephant walk along the beach and enjoy the Gulf coast waters Saturday.

One man even snapped a selfie, saying he couldn't believe his eyes!
