“The elephants will go wherever they want. […] Their intelligence makes them [quite] ready to break that barrier,” Nanda said.
The video went viral – it has been played more than 50,000 times – and caused a strong reaction from Internet users. One of them reported that these animals usually lash out at electric fences, throwing branches on the wire.
Nanda illustrated his words with another recording.
Elephants are known for their intellectual abilities. According to the environmental organization Elephant Voices, they can distinguish both their peers and humans, and even create connection tools with them and show empathy.
