And the winner for Dumbest Dad of The Year is…

This guy.

Jose Navarette was arrested after he took his 2-year-old daughter into the elephant enclosure at the San Diego Zoo because…he wanted a photo.

Risking his daughter’s life in the process, he also drops her as the elephant, naturally protecting its domain, begins to charge.

From CBS 8 in San Diego:

A father allegedly carried his 2-year-old daughter into an elephant habitat at the famous San Diego Zoo to take a photo with the animals. An elephant seemed like it wanted to charge at them, and the father dropped his child when they tried to escape the enclosure Friday.

The elephant was not harmed, and the man was able to get his daughter out of the habitat safely. The 25-year-old father was arrested on suspicion of child endangerment. Police told The San Diego Union-Tribune that the man “wanted to take a photo with the African bull elephant.”

Navarette is being held on $100,000 bail for child cruelty charges.

Next-level idiot, this guy – here’s the clip.
