“A 2.5-ton elephant broke loose from its handlers and went on the run during a parade in Blackpool, Cork. 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.” [Sky]
