Mammoth mayhem: elephant escapes circus and roams Montana streets

An elephant escaped from the circus and ambled through the streets of Butte, Montana, before being recaptured without harm, local news reported.

NBC Montana showed a video of the enormous pachyderm walking across a busy multi-lane street in front of stopped cars and gawping drivers. A later picture showed the elephant standing on a suburban house’s lawn.

NBC reported that the Jordan World Circus was visiting the city currently and that the animal had escaped from there.

“The elephant is now safe with its handlers,” NBC said.

But it added: “Viewers say before the elephant was captured it did number two on a Butte lawn.”
