If one were to think of what an elephant likes to eat, the most common answer would be bananas. However, in a strange video going viral from Assam, a gentle giant was seen gobbling up a helmet! While many thought the video was hilarious, others were concerned about the animal’s health.

In a clip widely circulated online, the tusker is seen coming across a parked motorcycle near a barricade. Approaching the two-wheeler, the animal quickly lifts the helmet on the handlebar with its trunk, puts it inside its mouth, and walks away.

As onlookers watch the scene unfold in astonishment, a person, probably the bike owner, is shocked. “Areey…mere helmet hi toh chala gaya…Areey baba de dijiye helmet. Kaise jaunga main? (Ohho, now my helmet is gone…please give back my helmet. How will I go now?)” he is heard in the background.

The incident took place on Tuesday morning in Guwahati’s Panjabari area adjacent to the Army Cantonment in Narengi.

Talking to 1xbet, a forest official in the area said the elephant is safe as it did not ‘eat the helmet’. “After picking up the helmet, the elephant kept it in its mouth for a while. However, it went a short distance further and spat it out,” said Jayanta Deka, DFO, Guwahati Wildlife Division.

He added that the elephant then proceeded to crush the helmet with its foot before heading back to the forest.

As the video created a huge buzz online, it left netizens divided. While some joked about how would the biker explain the situation to the traffic police, others thought the video was very sad, saying the elephant swallowed the helmet because it was looking for food.

Here’s how netizens had reacted to the clip:

Guwahati city shares its boundary with the 78.64-sq km Amchang Wildlife Sanctuary. It is not uncommon for elephants to loiter into the military cantonment area — and even the city — often. In fact in May 2019, one elephant was at GS Road, an arterial road of Guwahati, and it took the forest authorities 18 hours to guide it back to the forest.
