A stunned tourist on a Thai highway caught a video of an elephant blocking traffic by stealing sugar cane from incoming vehicles.
In the footage, the elephant is seen tipping onto the road and delaying traffic so it may steal sugar cane from passing cars.
Auan-tia is a young elephant that has spent the majority of his life in a nearby sanctuary. The cars had no choice but to slow down and allow the young elephant investigate more.
He comes across a car with an open top and decides to go for it and I n the process, the gorgeous creature had produced full gridlock.
What else can you do than stand there in astonishment as this huge animal searches for his favorite food?
The elephant tried to steal from over 12 different vehicles in a two-hour span, according to witnesses, prior to returning to the forest.
Since he was such a huge elephant, nobody dared to approach him and drive him back into the bush. Cars were previous him at a snail’s speed, while waiting in lengthy lines for him.
For many minutes, Auan tia searched right into each car that had been traveling from a nearby farm.
After exploring one vehicle, he looted some food and after that held up the next vehicle in line to do the same. His dish that day consisted of sugar cane and tapioca.
Wild animals officials warned motorists to be wary of the animal, although the elephants in this area are friendly and rarely create harm to people.
Truck drivers are used to seeing elephants on the road, so they take added measures, but this was an unusual case in which the monster stopped a big number of vehicles and refused to go.
