Animals Video

This is the moment a wild elephant stops a truck loaded with potatoes, removes the tarpaulin and begins munching on the goodies.

The astonishing video that currently has the internet amazed emerged from Garhbeta forest area in West Bengal in eastern India.

The 2-minute-long clip recorded on phones by other truck drivers shows the full grown elephant halting a truck on a national highway then smoothly removing the tarpaulin cover and taking potatoes from it.


The hungry animal’s sudden snack break halted traffic and created panic among truck drivers who burst crackers to drive it away.

But the full grown elephant can clearly be seen undeterred by the screaming crowd creating a ruckus or bursting firecrackers near it as the determined jumbo keeps munching on its jackpot.

Luckily, the gentle giant did no harm to the truck driver or anyone from the crowd and left into the wood after filing his belly.
