Circus Elephants Get Cray On Vodka

Oh my stars.

Jezebel reports that two Indian circus elephants tied one on while being transported through Siberia, Russia.  The truck caught fire, rendering everyone (humans and animals) stranded on a freezing highway.

To keep the elephants warm and prevent frost bite, handlers mixed two cases of vodka with water.

The result: A rousing good time in Siberia. 

“They roared like it was the jungle.  Must have been happy,” a local official said of the phants.

The handlers made the elephants run around so that they wouldn’t freeze, until they were rescued and warmed up in a heated garage.

Things went so well (only minimal frost bite), that they were able to perform their act in Omsk, Poland.
