Go home elephants, you're drunk! According to the Daily Mail U.K., after drinking 100 liters of alcohol, a herd of 50 elephants stormed through an Indian village, causing significant damage.

The animals were lured away from the jungle by the smell of a local liquor called Muhua. The elephants found the goods in a nearby store and consumed all 18 containers stocked at the store, but they were still thirsty.

The intoxicated creatures stormed through the town, ruining crops and buildings, looking for more spirits. Police spokesman Asish Samanat said the animals have developed a taste for the alcohol because of their close vicinity to humans. And just like man, when these gentle giants get drunk they become "aggressive and unreasonable."

Villagers were able to steer the elephants back towards the jungle and away from the populated area. Officials hope the herd will move on to a new location, instead of coming back for another round. One thing is certain, these elephants will never forget their upcoming hangover.

That is the photo of a Loxodonta Africana, an African Elephant. Elephas Elephas are different, especially the ears, which are much smaller and the shape of the head among other things.
