Interestingly, this elephant’s escapade comes on the heels of a recent incident in Berlin, Germany, where what was initially thought to be a lioness on the loose prompted a large-scale search involving over 220 armed police officers.

However, the search was eventually called off when it was determined that the presumed lioness was, in fact, a wild boar.

Authorities assured the public that there was no immediate threat in Kleinmachnow, a suburb of Berlin, and officially discontinued the hunt.
