People run from a wild elephant that strayed into the Indian town of Siliguri on Wednesday, February 10. The elephant had wandered in from the Baikunthapur Forest, crossing roads and a small river before entering the town. He trampled parked cars and motorbikes before being tranquilized by wildlife officials. AP
