Elephants when trained can play tricks… But here is one who has trained himself to play a life saving trick…
A video of an elephant using a smart trick to pull a wooden pole down so as to cross over the area has gone viral on social media. The 44-second video has been shared on Twitter by Susanta Nanda of the Indian Forest Service.
The elephant wanted to cross over to the other side of the jungle but couldn’t since a “solar electric fence maintained at 5kv was designed to deter” animals from doing so. The elephant, however, was determined enough. It pulled down the wooden pole that held the fence with its trunk. The elephant, thereafter, stepped over the fence and proceeded towards the jungle.
The internet liked the video and shared it widely across Twitter as the clip has been retweeted over 800 times. It has also garnered around 2,500 likes.
“Loved this. Let them break all ugly barricades (the sign of supremacy) on their path. They usually stay in its course & rarely breach into strange places that too only because of a shortage of vegetation to feed. Instead of spending for fences why not link & clear their paths,” a user wrote.
