In the background, people are heard shouting to scare the elephant away. Fortunately, no injuries were reported in the incident.
This video was widely shared on different social media platforms as well. A user on Twitter said, “He was just playing with the car as a toy.” “Such a disciplined elephant kept the car back where it was,” another user wrote. “Don’t keep food or any item with a strong scent in parked vehicles, even if doors and windows are closed,” the third commented.
