power to the elephants! they are really smarter than us anyway, aren't they? awesome that they are fighting back!
reminds me of scenes from the movie Instinct when they are killing gorillas. what a wonderful world. but nothing should ever stand in the way of "civilisation", right?
don't mind that the elephants have lived there for how long?

You know... if a bunch of elephants were to work that hard to free a fallen comrade, you have to admit that they are probably a lot smarter then me might think. Too bad this didn't register with the capturers. Would have liked to have seen him go free.

Sounds like my relatives surrounding a fresh baked pie.

"They'll be back tomorrow Johnson, and they'll try twice as hard this time"
"Aw man, they probably forgotten all about it!"
"Didn't you know, Johnson? An elephant never forgets!"

A herd of intelligent but pissed off elephants trying to spring one of their own while being chased around by chainsaw- and bulldozer-wielding people. If that doesn't qualify for a new "Bizarre" tag, I don't know what does.

I like how they used buldozers and chainsaws. That's just funny to me.
"Uh Sarg, my chainsaw is running low.."
"Damnit kid, use your teeth to knaw their balls off."

Uh oh, this is gonna spark a revolt among the vegetarians from yesterday's PETA string.

I bet if they just shot the damn things they wouldn't be too fvcking smart then. Kill em all. Elephants belong in zoos where people can view them safely.

Aww, hell, I was rooting for the elephants...

I think it's pretty clear that, if an elephant herd is smart enough to realize the difference between "being in a different place" and being kidenapped by foul hairless apes, the elephants involved are not just "smart for animals" or "smart as humans" but kind, considerate, and emotional - which to me is more important than IQ. You can have the IQ of a hamster, but if you're the nicest person in the world, does it matter that you can't do calculus? Hell, what is calculus good for anyway!

Calculus is excellent for enginering your microwave so that it cooks your dinner and not your brain as you stand in front it and lots of other things like that.

I think I'll root for the elephants. They sound like better company than some of the people I've meet.

"When you have an elephant by the hind legs and he is trying to run away, it's best to let him run."

This needs a "Hero" tag for the elephants.

We should also declare the Vietnamese captors a terrorist organization and the true vietnamese - who are elephants.

A herd of rampaging elephants battling a squad of chainsaw-wielding vietnamese for two hours. I would have paid $500 to witness this.
