Elephants are some of the most intuitive and intelligent species within the animal kingdom, even though they can sometimes be obtuse. They always wear their hearts on their sleeves, and you can tell when something’s bothering them.
That was the case for one Indian elephant. A large crowd was there to watch this majestic animal dig a hole for 11 hours throughout the night.
The villagers knew this was atypical behavior, and something was very wrong for her to act like this. However, bystanders were shocked once they saw what she was doing! What was it she did?!
A herd of 60 or so elephants had been spotted in a dusty region of northern India back in 2015. It’s well-known that there’s a high altitude and long rainy seasons for the landscape. These elephants had been traveling many miles when something very bad happened!
One Weird Elephant
The elephants were actually moving through the Chatra district, which is 100 miles from Ranchi. It’s called the “City of Waterfalls,” and elephants are often seen there. In fact, migrating elephants weren’t new to the villagers, but there was one that caught their eye.
