Vodka 'saved' elephants in Siberian freeze



......................................

The elephants, aged 45 and 48, suffered frostbite to the tips of their ears amid temperatures of -40C (-40F)

But they were warmed up by two cases of vodka mixed with warm water, one official was quoted as saying.

"They started roaring like if they were in the jungle! Perhaps, they were happy," the official told Russia's Ria Novosti news agency.

The animals continued their recovery in a heated garage of a local college where they were brought by a truck under police escort.

1. What, no orange juice? No tonic?

For pity's sake, who serves vodka watered down with water?
Cheap bastids.
