Over the past few months, many videos from Kerala have emerged showing elephants running amok creating havoc. However, the action mostly is a result of a human activity.
In one such video that has now gone viral on social media, a few young boys can be seen pelting stones at a wild elephant and a calf who seem to be standing peacefully by the roadside.
