Why Did the Elephant Break the Railroad Barrier? To Get to the Other Side
One of the elephants in India’s Chapramari Wildlife Sanctuary was faced with a challenge while trying to get to the other side of the sanctuary… he found himself at a railroad track barrier. Any driver knows just how annoying these barriers can be, but how exactly does an elephant deal with the inconvenience?
At first, the elephant tried to cross the tracks further away from the barrier but a metal fence blocked his way. After assessing the difficulty of the situation, the elephant decided to turn back to the railroad crossing. To cross the railroad tracks the elephant raised the first crossing bar and slowly made its way under. Since the second crossing bar was lower, the elephant decided to carefully step over it instead. Lucky for the elephant, the train was still far enough away to make a clean getaway across the tracks.
