Are you on your meds?

In Newmarket (a small city near Toronto) a woman called 911 to report that elephants were eating her trees at about 3am on Thursday morning.

The massive pachyderms, named Bunny and Suzy, had escaped from a circus at about 3 a.m. in Newmarket, a town of 75,000 people located 45 kilometres of Toronto.

The animals, performing at the Ray Twinney Complex with the Garden Bros. Circus, strolled the streets near Yonge Street and Davis Drive, munching on trees, shrubs and flowers.

I can only imagine the 911 call.

911 operator: "Um, elephants?"

Caller: "Yes. You know, big, gray, long trunk? In my yard."

911: "Are you sure?"

Caller: "I've been able to identify them since I was four years old. Definitely an elephant."

911: "Ma'am? Have you been drinking?"
