Circus elephants escape in US, damage nearby cars

ST. CHARLES, Mo. – Authorities say three elephants escaped from their handlers at a circus in the U.S. and damaged several vehicles in the parking lot before they were recaptured.

Television station KMOV reports that the female elephants escaped from the children’s ride section of the Moolah Shrine Circus in Missouri.

TV station KSDK says the circus issued a statement saying the handlers were able to occupy the animals and that “they are now resting comfortably in their compound at this time.”

Police say that the animals also damaged the venue’s loading door.
