Apparently, even the exotic wildlife in Louisiana know what it means to be a good neighbor. ABC News reported that early Tuesday morning, three elephants were being transported on Interstate 49 on a trip from New Orleans to Dallas. The three elephants were on their way to the circus when the 18-wheeler pulled off the road and got stuck in some mud near the Powhatan Exit on I-49.
Police were stunned to see two of the elephants outside of the truck, pressing up against the 18-wheeler to keep it from flipping over. Most people knew that elephants are smart, but who would have guessed that they are good Samaritans as well?
The two heroes were relieved of their duties by a towing service and no citations were issued.
