Here's a video of an elephant seen effortlessly pulling out the Maruti 800 stuck in a deep pothole. It's not the first time that an elephant has been used to rescue a vehicle.

Elephants are among the most intelligent creatures on earth and are often used as domestic animals in India. Elephants are domesticated for several reasons, like pulling heavy wooden logs, manoeuvring to the toughest areas and much more. Many of you may already know that elephants are extremely powerful, and we have already seen them rescuing cars from tough situations. Here we have one more example, where an elephant can be seen pulling out a Maruti 800 from a ditch without any hassle.


This Modified Maruti 800 Looks Like A Crazy Monster Truck

This video is uploaded by a YouTube channel named Ananthclicks, and the incident has happened somewhere in Kerala. In the starting, one can see that the car is stuck in the ditch, and people are trying to pull it out. Afterwards, the elephant can be seen pulling the car out of the deep pothole.

The elephant fails to pull out the hatchback a couple of times, but at last, the powerful animal brings the car out of the ditch. It seems like an easy task for the elephant to pull out the car. An adult elephant is strong enough to lift 300 kg to 500 kg using his trunk. Moreover, this is not the first time that an elephant has been used to rescue a vehicle.

Earlier, we’ve also seen a few cases where the elephants are saving bigger vehicles like Mahindra Scorpio or trucks. Sometimes, they also turn out to be violent and can create a big mess. In the past, there have been many incidents, where a violent elephant has smashed cars and destroyed public property. In future, if you are travelling in your car and spot an elephant going out of control, try to get out of the vehicle as soon as possible and look for a safe shelter.
