Why Did The Elephant Cross The Road?

It's not a joke. Man Bikes Away From Sprinting Elephant, Realizes What’s Happening When Elephant Beckons To Woods:



Just like that, the elephant starts charging the biker!




Fortunately, the biker escapes before anything happens—but the elephant seems to have another motive.

Once the biker has been chased off, the elephant does an about-face and turns to face the oncoming traffic. There are at least three to four cars coming, though upon seeing the massive obstacle in the road, they all do the smart thing and stop.

Seeing that they aren’t coming closer, the elephant takes a few cautious steps forward.




What happens next is both hilarious and adorable.

Once the coast is clear, the elephant gestures into the brush—and out follows his entire family! With his safe guidance, the elephant guides the mother and two children safely across the road without harm to anyone. As it turns out, the biker was just a distraction to the elephant’s larger goal.

Who knew that nature footage like this could come with its own plot twist?




Aside from being the cutest thing ever, this story teaches us to be more aware and understanding.

Though elephants are understandably intimidating creatures, they are also beautiful and empathetic animals that have been forced to live in communities with people in many areas. They have families and normal needs of their own, even if we can’t always understand their actions.

Because everyone in the clip was aware, nobody got hurt and the elephants made it safely across the road.


How can anyone be proud of killing one of these beautiful and intelligent creatures? We all remember that horrible picture of the Spawn of Trump proudly holding up the tail of an elephant he killed.

4. They remind me of the illegal immigrant road crossing signs we

have in San Diego. If Jr were on that bike I would hope that the elephants would've charged him and hung his head as a trophy in their elephant home.

13. That's cute, but elephant males aren't involved in raising calfs.

So a "family unit" wouldn't consist of male, female and children.

16. The feral chickens do that in the town I just moved away from.

The roosters walk out in the road and act like crossing guards for the hens and little ones. Their favorite crossing spot is near a stoplight.

17. What did the grape say when the elephant stepped on him?

Nothing. He just let out a little whine.

18. When people hit a bullseye on a target it is just as satisfying without the death.

It's just pulling a trigger. Grow up Trumps. Flaunt your power elsewhere. Leave the animals alone.

21. What a wonderful story! Thanks so much for posting!

I love elephants, too. They are very social creatures and have families. Anyone who wants to kill them is less than human.
