Elephants in Thailand are apparently interested in a different kind of trunk, video released by the Mass Communication Organization of Thailand shows. One shot from the inside of a vehicle shows an elephant inspecting the car through the windshield. In another part of the video, an elephant is shown stepping on to the hood, crushing it. Shortly after, the animal could have decided the car wasn't so comfortable, and stepped off, further damaging the sedan by breaking the windshield. Hopefully the owner of the car didn't have to get anywhere in a hurry.
