- People are usually scared of being robbed on the highway, but nobody has ever thought that they would be robbed by an animal
- An elephant recently got social media users talking after robbing passengers of a vehicle in broad daylight
- The animal blocked the road and forced the driver to stop, then threw its trunk into the vehicle to search for food
A video has emerged on social media in which an elephant could be seen robbing passengers of a vehicle of their food items in broad daylight.
In the video shared on Twitter, the elephant stood on the road as if manning a roadblock and the driver of the approaching vehicle pulled over.
The elephant then threw its trunk into the driver side and then to the passenger side to search for food items. A panicky passenger quickly tried to give the elephant some bananas but it wouldn't take them.
The animal, however, settled for the bananas and allowed the travellers to continue with their journey.
Social media users were surprised by the elephant's act and took to the comment section to share their thoughts.

"You get the feeling this isn't his first bus/vehicle robbery."
"The Giant has a great sense of smell with a great sense of being kind and a superb sense of being focused."
"Can't say robbery, he is collecting his road tax."
