Drunken Elephants go on Murderous Rampage

At least six people are dead in the Indian state of Assam after being trampled to death by a herd of drunken elephants.

The hungry elephants smashed into a rice granary looking for rice. In addition to the rice they found casks of homemade rice beer. "They smashed huts and plundered granaries and broke open casks to drink rice beer. The herd then went berserk killing six people," a forestry official stated.

"It has been noticed that elephants have developed a taste for rice beer and local liquor and they always look for it when they invade villages," an elephant expert in Guwahati said.

Apparently, once an elephant gets a taste for alcohol and running amok, they want to do it again and again. Unlike humans who drink too much, elephants do not have blackouts -- they never forget how much fun they had.

Tip o' the hat to Jessica Ard for bringing the BBC link to our attention.
