Ele­phant too hun­gry for US team

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

THE US team bus was de­layed for a train­ing ses­sion by an ele­phant snack­ing on a tree.

Af­ter four min­utes, the ele­phant moved to the side of the road and the team drove on to Royal Bafo­keng Sta­dium.

It was the sec­ond ele­phant in­ter­rup­tion of the day for the US men. Ear­lier, a bus car­ry­ing 10 play­ers to an open-air mar­ket got stuck be­hind an ele­phant, spokesman Michael Kam­mar­man said.

Signs out­side their ho­tel warn: “Ele­phants come close to our fence; keep a dis­tance of 30 me­tres and please be quiet.”
