    A wild elephant appeared in the streets of Pu’er City, in China's southwestern Yunnan Province.

    The local authorities evacuated the streets, and after several hour they were able to usher the pachyderm home.

    Asian elephants are protected animals in China. 

    The country has about 300 of them, mostly in Yunnan.
