Elephant on a Truck #atozchallenge

A Whimsical Medley - Is my theme for the A to Z Challenge !! Hope you smile today :)
******************
Travelling on Indian roads is always interesting. You never know what weird instance of life would come your way. Be it regular scenes like 5 people on a two wheeler or young boys hanging on the ladders of a running truck. But there are few that needs to be captured immediately - Like carrying Elephant on a Truck.

Vehicles - carrying - Elephants

I don't even know how they got this gigantic animal to climb the vehicle.

Although cattle travelling in a vehicle is pretty common site.

Animals on truck




Along with ClaireParul and Shalini we have formed an Unconventional Alliance with A to Z co-host Pam Margolis as the ring leader ... all set to rock the party

  1. I am the travel bug. I never learn so much as when I'm in a different country trying to sort out the culture. India's on my list. Haven't been there yet.

  2. Those poor animals. It's sad to see sometimes a lot of cattle being confined in such a small space for hours on end.

  9. Thankfully, the fellow didn't go beserk. I always feel sad when I see cattle and goats overcroweded into vehicles. I wonder what they think and feel.

  10. An elephant crammed on a truck - not a common sight here in the United States. But we have trucks carrying cattle, and chickens, to where they will end their lives. And, horse trailers. Those tend to be more humane, I suspect.

  13. They must have lured it onto the truck with a bunch of bananas :p
    I haven't seen weird things while travelling. Just shows that I haven't travelled to the exciting places yet :D

  14. That's an amazing capture. I've once seen a truck load of pigs going to the slaughter house and felt really bad about them becoming sausages.

  15. O.. I've seen this so many times! Good that you captured it and put here on the blog :)

    Cheers

  17. This looks weird but I do feel for the poor animal.

  18. Weird for the big elephant. and must be so scary for the animal. People do strange things, don't they?

    ReplyDelete
  19. It's sad. But I seen them being carried on trucks!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I have not seen an elephant but have seen lots other!! What a ride for these guys!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I have seen cows, buffaloes, sheep, goats and horses being transported in trucks, but never an elephant. Amazing capture this one is!

    ReplyDelete
  22. It is sad to see the animals stumbling about in the fast moving vehicles. I too wonder how the elephant climbed onto the truck :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yeah! I have witnessed this sight. I felt better that atleast this elephant is not struggling with space like some cattles do! The other sight is quite painful and inhuman!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Seriously, how did they manage to get it up there?

    Poor things though, the torture they have to go through.
