Travelling to another country means a zillion things right for passports to visa clearances and what not for humans. However, the rules of the animal kingdom are a lot different from the man-made ones and the animals usually do not bother about the rules and regulations set by humans but follow their own path. Something similar happened when an elephant decided that it needed to take a nighttime stroll from China to Laos. The elephant went out of Xishuangbanna Dai Autonomous Prefecture of Yunnan Province in China and went over the barricade and entered Laos. A video showing the elephant gingerly stepping over the barricade has gone viral on social media because people are amazed at how polite and considerate the mammal’s actions are that it did not do any damage to the barricade but just gently stepped over it. The polite and considerate elephant is seen in the video going for a nighttime stroll across the China-Laos border.
A CCTV footage captured at the Chahe check-post shows the elephant approaching the border and stops when it sees the railing. However, the elephant just stepped over the railing without breaking it. Its polite and considerate manner has made many Twitter users laugh out loud. However, it seems Laos did not hold much excitement for it and the elephant returned after two hours and this time around takes the side lane instead of stepping over the blocked railing again.
