How much mess does an elephant make at an all-you-can-eat buffet?

Everyone loves a good buffet, but perhaps no-one more so than this wild elephant in China.

It wandered into a village in southwest China feeling a bit hungry.

It found its way into an inn and made itself at home tucking in to all of the food there.

The elephant stayed munching away for several hours!

The inn's owner made sure it wasn't disturbed and once it was full, the elephant headed safely back home to the forest.
