Bewildered netizens rather expected to see bears freely hanging around a park in the northern Russian city of Kemerovo, and literally gasped as they saw a gigantic pair of elephants peacefully playing catch-up with a number of people around.

Pictures and videos have emerged on the Russian social network Vkontakte of a pair of elephants wandering around and then swiftly running away from people chasing them.

Each video shows elephants strolling along the parkway, as a number of people, allegedly circus staffers, chase it. The men urge the elephants to stop, but the animals go on moving forward in a bid to escape. The circus press service told Russian media that the promenade was conducted as a PR campaign ahead of a tour to another city.
