Indian roads are filled with astonishing sightings every day and this certainly qualifies as astonishing and even perilous.
This latest incident on the road shows an elephant being transported on a Tata Ace. Now, while this might well be a common way to move animals around, it is certainly not the safest. In fact, it is not only dangerous for the animal but for everyone around. Activities like these are what make the Indian roads so perilous and challenging. Let us take a deeper look at what this video clip is all about.

Elephant Transported by Tata Ace
Someone driving behind a Tata Ace recorded the video from his/her car. It looks like a busy highway with plenty of cars around. And on the middle of this highway, there is this Tata Ace carrying a mammoth elephant. There is a trailer attached to the compact pickup truck on which the feet of the elephant seem to be tied. That is the only harness that has secured the giant elephant to its place.

Now, since the trailer is too small for the elephant to sit, it has to keep standing. But that is exactly what makes this entire procedure so unpredictable and unsafe. On hard braking, the animal could easily fall off. Since its feet are tied it could land awkwardly on the road causing other cars to become a victim. That could create a litany of collisions since sudden manoeuvring could cause disturbance to the flow of traffic. Therefore, such an attempt could prove to be fatal for the animal, as well as for everyone around.

Finally, the average weight of the elephant could easily be around 4,000 kg. However, the load-bearing capacity of the Tata Ace is a mere 750 kg. That is already a huge blunder and represents the carelessness of the people trying to carry weight for which the pickup truck is not engineered. Such huge elephants must be transported using huge trucks which are covered and provide sufficient safety to the animal and enough area for it to sit. We hope that this doesn’t cause any harm to anyone.
