ASSAM: In a surprising incident, a wild elephant was spotted eating a helmet hanging from a parked motorbike near Amchang Wildlife Sanctuary in India’s Assam.
In the video that has gone widely viral on social media, the wild elephant can be seen walking towards a parked bike near the military camp and pulling out the helmet with its trunk.
Elephant straying out of Amchang RF swallows a motorbike helmet left on the handlebar as bystanders look on. Maybe it made him feel full, but it certainly isn’t healthy.
