A shopping center in suburban Cork, Ireland, got a surprise visit from an escaped Indian elephant on the lam from a nearby circus.

The petulant pachyderm refused to be led away by its handler and took off down the street. Two circus employees eventually stopped the elephant at a traffic light as it was heading for Blackpool Shopping Centre and managed to escort it home.

No one was injured in the elephant escape attempt, but one shopper contacted police to report damage to his parked car.
