No elephants were harmed in the making of this post
An 18-wheeler containing a cargo of elephants wound up stranded on the shoulder of the road in Louisiana, about to tip over, Reuters reports. The driver — yes, he’s an elephant trainer — removed his elephants from the trunk (pun intended) and instructed them to prop up the vehicle. The elephants saved the day, pushing the giant truck back upright. Both elephants left the scene unscathed.
