elephant2Xu Hongwei, owner of the inn in Yunnan Province and a member of the local elephant patrol team, said he warned guests at this business to remain on the second floor when the animal wandered inside about 4:30 a.m. Saturday.

The elephant spent about four hours feasting on corn, oranges and other food stored inside the inn, Xu said.

Xu said locals, who are familiar with the elephant from previous incidents where the wild animal wandered near to homes in search of food, controlled traffic outside the inn to allow the elephant to safely leave on its own.

There were no injuries to elephant or human during the visit, but the pachyderm left a big mess behind at the inn, Xu said.
