Two elephants got into a fight on March 21 during a circus show in the Russian city of Kazan, reports the RIA Novosti agency.
The presentation was going according to plan, but suddenly one of the elephants began to attack the other until he was knocked over, then biting and hitting him. Spectators in the nearby stands fled, while circus staff tried to separate and reassure the pachyderm. Finally, the two animals were safely removed from the arena.
In statements to RIA Novosti, from the circus they indicated that no person was injured. However, the incident forced the cancellation "for technical reasons" of the function that was scheduled for the afternoon of the same day.
