When human beings get tipsy, they either speak gibberish or land up in a brawl. But when elephants get high on liquor, they end up wreaking havoc.

Such was the sight at Dumurkota village where a herd of 50-odd inebriated jumbos ransacked three houses and damaged paddy crops on Sunday. The strong smell of Mahua drink drew the elephants out of the forest and they raided the shop selling the drink. The herd wasn't happy even after guzzling down 18 containers of Mahua and ransacked the adjoining huts in search of more.

Go home, Elephant. You're drunk.




I'm sorry. I couldn't help it.

I love a good drunk elephant story! (Would have been better with pictures of drunk elephants though.)

"Mahua", eh? Where do you get that?

Binge drinking has become a real problem among Indian elephants, particularly the young males. Researchers believe it's tied to low self esteem issues brought about by high unemployment rates. Said researcher Punjib Rampanishad, "These young bulls have too much time on their hands and no sense of worth. When you couple that with the herd mentality, anything can happen."
It's reported that on their way out of town, the elephants knocked over several mailboxes and mooned a busload of school children.

Hahaha. Sort of reminds me of the crowds after winning/losing a game. What I cannot even vaguely imagine is how they 'mooned' the bus load of kids. I did not know they wore pants!
