Elephants to the rescue in Natchitoches Parish.

On Tuesday morning March 24th at approximately 7:03am, Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Deputies received a call requesting assistance with a stranded eighteen wheeler truck on Interstate 49 near the Powhatan exit.
Deputies were dispatched to assistance.  When deputies arrived on scene, they were astounded to find two elephants keeping the eighteen wheeler from overturning. Three elephants on the truck were being transported from New Orleans to Dallas, Texas.

A local wrecker service was contacted to assist in the removal of the 2000 Kenworth eighteen wheeler.  The truck was stuck after the driver pulled on the edge of the soft shoulder.

No citations were issued.
