Herd Of 50 Elephants Filmed Calmly Crossing The Road In Thailand

Herd Of 50 Elephants Filmed Calmly Crossing The Road In Thailand

Footage shows the moment a herd of more than 50 elephants held up traffic to cross a road in Thailand, as people watched on in awe.

The elephants emerged from the jungle to pass the highway in Chachoengsao province on 9 April.

Several police officers arrived to ensure the elephants made it safely to the neighbouring area of the jungle, with locals seen gathering on either side of the road to watch the beasts calmly make their way through.

Pratya Chutipat Sakul, who filmed the incredible clip, said: ''More than 50 wild elephants crossed the highway. They were moving together from one part of the jungle to the other.

''The wildlife officers had been following the elephants for the last few days. When they saw that their path was moving towards the road, they called the police and urgently closed the road.

''Policemen arrived to ensure that the elephants crossed smoothly and there were no accidents. Nobody minds waiting for the elephants, as the most important thing is that they're safe.

Elephants Reclaim Popular National Park In Thailand Amid Lockdown

While the streets of Thailand have been graced by the presence of elephants, over in east London, UK, a residential neighbourhood recently welcomed a group of deer.

The animals had taken over a deserted housing estate in Harold Hill, where they were seen chilling on various patches of grass and making the most of the unusually quiet streets as the UK remains in lockdown.

The deer were believed to have come from nearby Dagnam Park, which is just across the road from the estate.

But while they've been spotted hanging about around homes in the past, locals say the deer have been seen now more than ever, and that many have been moving closer to homes.

Local Dean Zetter, 50, was working in the area when he was surprised to see around 20 deer sitting on the grass.

The council street works inspector said: "I came across them just lying around.

"Residents, some with their dogs, just left them alone, and the dogs didn't bark or startle them. It was a beautiful start to the day.

"Apparently they are quite common - but there were around fifteen to twenty.

"They just continued lying there chewing the grass.

"I think it's because it's quieter."
