Elephant Trio Escapes Missouri Circus


Good morning, I'm David Greene.

There might be an elephant in the room, or three in a parking lot. That's what circus-goers in St. Charles County, Missouri saw this weekend. A trio of elephants escaped. The trunked bandits got spooked by a loud noise and ran into the parking lot, meandering between cars and leaving a few dented. Handlers tried to corral the animals using pretzels. They finally rounded them up. The elephants, we're told, were not injured, but they were given the night off.
