This is the funny moment when an elephant gets stuck trying to climb over a fence after raiding crops in India.

The animal was captured on camera at Nagarhole National Park in Karnataka, southwest India, on November 16.

The video shows the elephant initially swinging with one leg on a metal fence post while scanning the other side.

It then places its front legs over the fence, but gets stuck with its substantial rump and hind legs in the air, pointing towards the camera.

The elephant struggles for a few moments before figuring out how to use its hind legs to push its weight over the barrier.

In a gigantic effort, he pushes himself up, briefly ‘kneeling’ on the top rung, before finally reaching the other side safely.

The video was shared on Twitter by Supriya Sahu, who captioned it ‘Speechless’.

The clip has been viewed more than 248,000 times and has been liked by nearly 20,000 people.

One person commented: “I have seen videos of these gentle giants crossing a fragile bamboo fence when they could have easily traversed it.”

Another said: ‘Traffic violation, a fine of Rs 500 should be imposed on that elephant.’

Mahesh Kumar, director of the Nagarahole Tiger Reserve, said the indian express that the video was recorded in the Veeranahosalli Mountain Range on the morning of November 16.

He said the animal was returning to the forest after a foray into the crops.

And it is not the first elephant to get stuck climbing a fence.

A clumsy calf got stuck midair over a wooden fence at a shrine in Thailand on May 2.

The clip, filmed in Chiang Mai, captured the adventurous animal as it balanced on its front legs with its two hind legs dangling over the sturdy fence.

The young man, named Khunseuk, struggled to get out of the precarious position as an older elephant watched from inside the pen.

The clumsy elephant tries in vain to move his legs over the fence before finally managing to drag him forward.
