Local police in China tried to evacuate people and checked on damage after a wild elephant in the country's southwestern Yunnan province dented cars during a stroll on a tourist road.

More than two dozen vehicles were damaged over three days as the massive elephant wandered through the area. China's state-run Xinhua News Agency, which suggested the elephant was  probably angry after losing a battle for a mate, said insurance companies were investigating the damage and would offer compensation to the owners.
