Angry Elephant Smashes Up Vehicles During Holy Festival

Devidasan's rampage lasted for several hours.

A rampaging elephant destroyed multiple vehicles during a holy festival in India.

Video posted online shows the pachyderm called Devidasan wreaking havoc in Kerala's Palakkad district on Thursday.

He picked up motorbikes, a motorized rickshaw and a pick-up truck after escaping his tether during a procession, reports the Daily Express.

The vehicles were all tossed up into the air, and then smashed to the ground.

All the time, two men sitting on top of Devidasan unsuccessfully tried to calm him down.

The bull elephant reportedly remained at large for several hours until finally being brought under control.

Incredibly, no one was injured in the frenzy.
