Great wall of trucks against a herd of elephants

BEIJUNG: Dump trucks have been lined up on the edge of homes in southwest China as a bulwark against wild elephants escaped from a reserve that have already caused millions of yuan in damage.

The fifteen pachyderms, including three baby elephants, left their reserve in Xishuangbanna, a border region between Laos and Burma, in mid-April to head due north some 500 km it was reported.

The reason for their unusual migration remains a mystery, but the elephants ransacked corn fields in their path and caused extensive material damage.

In an attempt to drive the herd away from densely populated areas, a convoy of trucks are parked along a small country road .

Since the start of their journey in mid-April, the elephants have ravaged about 56 hectares of crops, for damage estimated at 6.8 million yuan (870,000 euros).
