Of all the bizarre things that happen in this little country, seeing wild animals around the place is certainly something new.
And by wild, we're not talking about a fox or a rabbit found in the woods. Nope, we're talking about three MASSIVE elephants just lounging around on a green in Dublin.

Yep, we kid you not. On Tymon Park in Tallaght, local residents were welcomed to the sight of the beautiful creatures.
The Echo Newspaper reports that the elephants belong to the Belly Wien circus who are situated just across the road from the green.

The elephants were held in by a simple plastic rope, and we'd say people waiting for the bus beside them got quite a scare if they came close.
Ah, Dublin. You never fail to surprise us.
