EUFAULA, Okla. – A truck transporting four elephants stalled on an Oklahoma Highway Wednesday afternoon.

The elephants had to be transferred off the stalled truck to another.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the incident blocked the outside lane of US 69 Highway northbound, just north of Eufaula.

Patrol Lt. Jarrett Johnson says a wrecker service arrived to help move the stalled vehicle.

He says a veterinarian from the area was also on scene to help move the elephants.

Johnson says he did not know where the truck came from or where it was headed when it broke down.
