Photo of the day: Is nobody going to mention the elephant on the bus?

Old & Funny Photos of Elephants (7)

Nowadays, animals on buses are a dime a dozen. Not only do we see a tube-setting dog on a daily basis but cats, rabbits, ferrets and even tarantulas are a common occurrence. Well, maybe not common, but certainly unsurprising. But it’s definitely not every day you see an elephant board the local 31 to Earls Court now, is it? Back in 1980, this BFG was spotted trying to do just that and a happy snapper caught the moment and shared it with us all (whether it was staged or not is not our concern). So next time you’re on a packed bus and pressed up against the window in an impromptu fort of suitcases, be grateful you don’t also have to deal with an elephant and one massive trunk. Carly-Ann Clements
