Circus Elephant On The Run

A 2.5-ton elephant breaks loose during a parade in Ireland.

Video taken by a witness shows the animal loose in a car park near a busy shopping centre as members of Courtney’s Circus tried to restrain her.

The 40-year-old Indian elephant, named Baby, then broke through a barrier before heading off towards the town.

The circus had been parading all its elephants as part of a promotional stunt.

Fortunately the animal was captured shortly after – with no damage done and no injuries.
