Complaint filed against elephant
The father of a 10-year-old boy filed a police complaint after a circus elephant trampled his child’s bicycle, a police spokesman said. Dennis Horvath parked his bicycle close to the elephant compound at the Cirkus Mustang in Finspaang, 110 miles southwest of the capital, Stockholm, to watch as the circus came to town.
While he watched the parade, one of the elephants in the pen used his trunk to pick up the bicycle for a closer look and then dropped it on the ground and trampled it.
When circus officials said they weren’t responsible for replacing it, Horvath’s father, Gyula, filed a police complaint. ap
