According to the release the elephants were en route to a circus in Dallas from their original location in Florida.

“The truck became stuck after the driver pulled off the edge of the soft shoulder.,” the release said. “Recent rains caused the ground off of the shoulder to be soft.”

A wrecker was called to assist to remove the tractor.

There were no injuries to man nor beast and no citations were issued.

But it was a call to remember.
