Elephants Help Rescue Stuck 18-Wheeler in Louisiana

Stuck in the mud? See what's in the trunk.

— -- A pair of elephants helped rescue the truck they were riding in when it got stuck in the mud on a trip from New Orleans to Dallas.

"When deputies arrived on scene, they were astounded to find two elephants keeping the eighteen wheeler from overturning," the sheriff's office said.

A wrecker service arrived and was able to free the truck, relieving the elephants of their burden.

No citations were issued, police said.
