2:32 pm
then watch this. the ramp is all done, barely out. elephants are like, we're out of here. >> why not automatically put in a ramp? it's still going to catch water. not going to empty the water, and animals will have an easy way in and out. >> this video will restore your faith in humanity. you have a guy driving his car. looks like you have three birds in the street, but one isn't a bird. the guy in the car stops, he posted this video. he's looking at these two crows going, you know what, you are not going to make a meal of this animal. we're eating here. >> gangster like that. >> exactly. it's a little possum. best part, right? he picks it up and it runs up his arm. >> didn't even flinch. >> hold on a second, he's going to put it up in the tree? what's going to keep the crows away from him? >> you're already friends. it's a disney movie.

2:35 pm
how do you just not explode with anger? >> her family members were having none of it, and as a matter of fact, the employee was dismissed. they do say all the people that work there are trained for these types of situations and they do acknowledge that employee used disproportionate force. >> the unfortunate thing, even if they do have the proper training, people just aren't good people and this woman thought she was privately showing her true self by treating this woman like this and it's horrible. >> looks like an accident. she didn't shove her down, but there was more pushing and shoving than should normally be going on. you don't take a combative stance with somebody living in your facility. >> if this is my grandma, if a woman did this, i'm going to be on your neck. >> this woman does have alas alzheimer's. she is still at the facility, and all of this is being investigated by authorities. it's time to give away
