'Elephant in the Room': 'Gentle Giant' Breaks into Army Dining Hall in Binnaguri
An old video that has gone viral shows an elephant, that has entered an Army cook house in Binnaguri, West Bengal and seems to be searching for something in the storeroom. The video, that has been shared by Susanta Nanda, an IFS officer, is not new; moreover, this is not a new sight in Binnaguri which is extremely close to the forest with freely roaming wildlife.
Nanda's tweet mentions, "Elephant in side an Army Cook house at Binaguri , Assam. Difficult times for the gentle giant." However, one of his followers corrected him and said that the placed was located in West Bengal, not Assam.

It is not clear as to what exactly the elephant was trying to do or what it was looking for, but it does make for a fascinating watch. This is what others had to say:
