More at The Register

A herd of 40 Indian elephants which quaffed rice wine, “went berserk” as a result and rampaged round a village looking for food, suffered six fatalities after toppling an electricity pole, the West Australian reports.

According to state wildlife official Sunil Kumar, the drunken pachyderm electrocution incident took place last Friday in Chandan Nukat, a village some 240km west of Meghalaya state’s capital Shillong. Kumar said: “There would have been more casualties had the villagers not chased them away.”

Holy cow! Imagine 40 drunken elephants dashing and thrashing around your neighborhood. Scary!
