Elephants are usually calm beings, but heaven help anyone should they be in front of an upset elephant.

An example of that can be seen in this video that captures an elephant that went on a rampage in Puthiyapalam, Kozhikode, Kerala, recently. The elephant can be seen crushing an autorickshaw and storming inside shops damaging anything in its way. The mahout, who was, at the time on the elephant’s back, was also thrown down by the mammal. Miraculously, he landed straight on the road and ran away.

Watch video:

It’s not the first time an elephant is run amok in Kerala, these incidents are on a rise. In November 2015, elephants destroyed six houses in Mukkumpuzha Tribal Colony at Poringalkuthu, near Chalakudy.

    Elephant wants to free life not under the control of man. It can't tolerate man tortured. Let us help them to live in forest with their family. All elephant to be displa to forest. Otherwise we may loose some life. Also elephant using in a temple and festivals to be banned. This will be the warning sign. Kerala using elephant more than other states so let's begin from kerala
