The Hindustan Times of India this week reported the story of one very smart elephant harassing the local population. Commuters in the Indian eastern state of Orissa are frustrated at an elephant blocking traffic on a main roadway, only allowing viechles to pass if the occupant gives the elephant food.

“The tusker then inserts its trunk inside the vehicle and sniffs for food,” local resident Prabodh Mohanty, who has come across the elephant twice, was quoted as saying.

“If you are carrying vegetables and banana inside your vehicle, then it will gulp them and allow you to go.”

 If a commuter does not wind down his window or resists opening the vehicle door, the elephant stands in front of the car until the driver allows him to carry out his routine inspection.

Now thats using brain over braun!
