Adorable Baby Elephant Gets Caught Eating Sugarcane, Hides Behind A Light Pole

Around 2000 elephants living in the forests in Thailand. Out of these, one baby elephant created headlines this week for the most ‘adorable’ reason you can think of. After getting caught eating sugarcane, the giant baby decided it would be a good idea to ‘hide’ behind a light pole.

This baby elephant was secretly feasting on some sugarcane in a farmer’s field when approached by locals. The cheeky ‘crime’ scene was caught on camera in Chiang Mai, North Thailand. To avoid getting caught, the endearing animal ‘hid’ behind a narrow light pole. Thanks to this playful cutie, both the local farmers and thousands of internet users had a hearty laugh.

The baby elephant probably came across some sugarcane and decided to have a short and sweet feast. After being unexpectedly busted by the locals, however, the baby decided to stand behind a narrow post, believing that no one could see it. When the locals shone a light upon its clearly noticeable place of escape, the elephant kept standing ‘perfectly’ still.

The post was initially posted to Facebook on the 16th of November. The caption of the post read: “Keep calm. Officers will see. Let’s continue eating sugarcane” in Thai.
