Wild elephant makes trouble on downtown street in southwest China

A wild elephant, rejected by his herd by another male, was forced to wander the streets of Meng'a Town in southwest China's Yunnan Province and destroyed almost 10 vehicles.

The lost animal was filmed by a drone used by the local forestry station personnel, recording the Asian elephant's visit.

People and cars were moved out of his path and the forestry station staff tried to guide him back towards the forest but unfortunately failed.

The local police and firefighters had to step in and the mammal was led away to safety after 30 minutes.
