BROTHERS Dylan and Charlie Cannie enjoyed an Easter trip to Knowsley Safari Park.

Here 10 year-old Dylan and his four-year-old brother from Hindsford, Atherton, take time out at the sea lion enclosure.

Shortly afterwards the pair brought a smile from onlookers on the giraffe viewing platform.

As Dylan went to stroke a giraffe Charlie grabbed him around the waist and pulled him away shouting “don’t Dylan – it will eat you” only to be told by his big brother “don’t worry, they don’t eat meat!”.
