Elephants reach Chinese city after 500km trek

These elephants walked over 300 miles along highways

to reach the outskirts of Chinese city Kunming

Location: Yunnan Province, China

People parked trucks on the road and placed pineapples on the ground

to try and redirect the herd of 15 wild elephants

It's unclear why the herd kept on moving north

but Xinhua news agency says a decline in edible plants

in forest habitats has put pressure on the animals
