    A Space for Giants image shows a bull elephant breaking through a fence intended to keep it inside a wildlife reserve at Mutara Ranch in the central Kenyan district of LaikipiaMachete in hand, Kenyan farmer Paul Njoroge points at the broken branches and giant footprints where elephants trampled his bananas, maize, potatoes and sugar cane. "We don't hate the elephants, but their activities are making us poor," said the 53-year old farmer, surveying his lush green fields, a five-hectare (12-acre) plot on the slopes of the Laikipia highlands in central Kenya. While poachers slaughter thousands of elephants across Africa each year, competition between elephants and people over land is a far bigger problem in the long run, conservationists say.

Officials at the Zoo in Forest Park and Education Center said the 12-pound (5.4 kg) long-tailed monkey "manually twisted open the door knob and let himself out" after the staff member exited the area to answer a visitor's question. Officials just about caught the monkey on Tuesday night when a member of the crowd that had gathered to watch the attempt tossed something at him, scaring him off, they said.
