So when elephants go on a rampage and kill a bunch of people, the standard operating procedure is pretty.... standard. You get some tranquilizers, bring the elephant down, and trim its tusks so that it can't cut people's heads off with them anymore.
But what if you are dealing with elephants that are drunk?
Well, probably attempting to "scare them off using drums and firecrackers" isn't the best idea. But, then again, if you live in an area where an elephant-related death occurs every five days, there's probably not a whole lot you can do.
You could call in Vladimir Putin. He seems to pretty good at making problems disappear..
