Spotted: Elephants in Boston

"I think we've seen it all" J said.

Yes, you read that right. ELEPHANTS. The Ringling Bros & Barnum Bailey Circus is in town. J and I nearly died of shock when we spotted an entourage of elephants, followed by a troop of horses and miniature ponies walking on the road in Boston/Cambridge area last night while enroute to the Logan Airport. They were tail in tail as seen in the photo here snapped by a fellow observer, except we saw them at 7pm in the dark, flanked by staff and police officers. Roads were blocked and the group were moving quite silently in the middle of the evening - there were no crowds or pedestrians and the elephants weren't wearing their circus head gear for PR either. The circus is in town, so watch the roads for any elephants crossing!
