    Chimps, elephant, dogs and polar bears doing interesting things - no soundtrack.

  • Description

    Soundtrack currently missing.

    Titles read: 'Your Pet's Intellect - Some Interesting Comparisons.'

    Location of events unknown - probably United States of America.

    Several shots of animals doing 'interesting' things. Chimpanzee in dungarees and hat roller-skates along path, staggers onto grass and trips over! (It looks quite funny, even if it is cruel and politically incorrect.) Another in a hat and clothes hangs onto a stick, while people watch. Another chimp carries a puppy along. Yet another eats food from a plate with a fork.

    An orang-utan rides a bicycle around the deck of a ship then smokes a cigarette. Several shots of working elephant picking up a rock with its trunk and putting it in a hole (while being ridden by an Indian man). Monkey walks out of his cage and eats from a bowl, then seems to be playing the drums on his tummy.

    Alsatian guide dog walks with a blind man across a suburban street when traffic lights change. St Bernard dog has the cask round his neck adjusted then sniffs out a person in distress lying prostrate in the snow. Beavers at work building a dam on a river. Slow motion shot of a horse jumping over a fence with a woman on its back holding her arms out (not holding on). Polar bears slide down ramp and into a pool while people watch from outside their cage. A white and black cat shares a cupcake with a bird, then sits with it while the bird tries to peck at its nose.
