Everybody has their own Halloween tradition, whether it’s taking chocolate from strangers or doing shots of vile flavoured vodka. But the elephant family at the Oregon Zoo’s annual “Squishing of the Squash” its hands-down my favourite.

There’s something innately satisfying about four tonne animals destroying half tonne vegetables. And I think it’s fair to say the elephants enjoyed themselves, too.
