Elephants electrocuted in drunken rampage

When they said that life is stranger than fiction, I take it this is what they meant.


GAUHATI, India - Six Asiatic wild elephants were electrocuted as they went berserk after drinking rice beer in India's remote northeast, a wildlife official said Tuesday.

Nearly 40 elephants came to a village on Friday looking for food. Some found beer, which farmers ferment and keep in plastic and tin drums in their huts, said Sunil Kumar, a state wildlife official.

They got drunk, uprooted a utility pole carrying power lines and were electrocuted in Chandan Nukat, a village nearly 150 miles west of Shillong, the capital of Meghalaya state, Kumar said.

"They had found rice beer in Indian village; incident reflects loss of habitat"

No, the incident reflects that elephants can't hold their beer.

Edited to add..."Lightweights!"

Sounds like a typical night out in Birmingham.
