A wild elephant strayed onto a national highway in Yunnan province during the Spring Festival holiday and damaged 15 parked cars.

The animal, named Zhusunya, left the Wild Elephant Valley Scenic Area in the province's Xishuangbanna Dai autonomous prefecture on Friday afternoon and walked onto a section of the G213 National Highway, according to local police.

Pictures and video of the elephant walking down the road, swinging its trunk and legs at the cars it passed, were published online and went viral over the holiday.
