The rumor of elephants being frightened by mice is as old as time. It was used as a plot device in numerous movies and cartoons, and though it sounds ridiculous, there must be some truth to it.

Don’t believe me? Watch what happens when this Great Dane comes face-to-face with a baby goose. Its priceless reaction will have you laughing for hours.
