Filmed by onlookers in Nagarhole National Park on 16 November, the animal can be seen trying to climb over the barrier

It then dangles its forelegs over the fence and becomes stuck balancing on its stomach. 

After a moment, the elephant makes some progress before figuring out that its hind legs were key to its success.

The elephant uses its back legs to push its weight over the barrier, almost crawling across, before eventually making it to the other side safely. 

The video was shared on Twitter by IAS officer Supriya Sahu who captioned it ‘Speechless’.

The video has been viewed more than 248,000 times and liked by almost 20,000 people. 

One person commented: ‘I have seen videos of these gentle giants cross over a flimsy bamboo fence when they could have easily walked through it.’

Another said: ‘Traffic violation 500 Rupees fine must be imposed on that elephant.’   

Mahesh Kumar, director of Nagarahole Tiger Reserve, told the Indian Express that the video was recorded in the Veeranahosally Range.

And it isn’t the first elephant to get stuck climbing over a fence.   

A clumsy baby elephant got his hind legs stuck in the air over a wooden fence at a sanctuary in Thailand.

The clip, filmed in Chiang Mai, captures the adventurous animal as he balances on his front feet with his two back legs dangling over the sturdy fence.

The youngster, named Khunseuk, struggles to move out of the precarious position as an older elephant watches on from inside the pen.

The energetic elephant then regains his balance before heading towards its older companion.

Khunseuk’s keeper said he had ‘no idea’ how the young elephant found himself in such an odd position on May 2.
