French elephant briefly escapes circus

There are multiple versions of the story, but what is clear is an elephant got loose from “La Piste aux etoiles”, a French circus, and wandered around the city of Clermont-Ferrand before being recaptured.  Surprised city dwellers took photos from their phones and shared the images on social media.

Originally, circus employees said a vandal released the 42 year old elephant from her rope.  Then, circus officials changed the story, saying the elephant became loose as she was being taken for a walk by staff.

I personally believe the original story, but then circus officials likely worried about copycat actions so they changed the narrative.
