Three elephants escaped from their handlers at a US circus and damaged several vehicles in the car park before they were recaptured.
Television station KMOV reports that the female elephants escaped from the children's ride section of the Moolah Shrine Circus in St Charles, Missouri.
The circus issued a statement saying the handlers were able to occupy the animals and that "they are now resting comfortably in their compound at this time".
Police say that the animals also damaged the venue's loading door.
