Elephant steals handbag from car in India

By Ben Hooper

BENGALURU, India, June 1 (UPI) -- A mother elephant in India reached into the car of a pair of selfie-taking tourists and snatched a handbag that became an abortive snack.

Witnesses said the elephant and her calf were at the side of a road in Karnataka when the tourists on the road toward Ooty stopped to take selfies with the elephants in the background.

The witnesses said the mother seemed angered by the camera flashes and reached into the couple's car, pulled out a handbag and put it in her mouth.

The elephant, which apparently found the bag unappetizing, spit the fashion accessory and its contents onto the ground as the car drove away.

The mother then made a meal from some of the bag's leaked contents, including fruit, cash and credit cards.
