The clip is from a village in Karnataka called Hossur. It begins with a herd of elephants standing on the side of the road in a residential area as bystanders watch them. The elephants can be seen struggling to find a way as they are blocked from all the sides. When they can’t figure out something, they just turn and one by one jump a wall to get inside the jungle. An old elephant can also be seen in the video trying to push a baby elephant to help it cross the wall.
After the video was shared on Twitter, many netizens took to the comment section to talk about the sad state of things. One user wrote, “Shame that we humans have created such a situation for them.”

The houses must have been built on the path used by the elephants for many generations.
