CHINA (ABC NEWS) - A wild elephant surprised border guards Saturday when it arrived at a border checkpoint.

Security cameras were recording when the giant animal returned to Laos after making a visit to China.


The elephant had arrived in the country about 6:00 that morning and then returned about 2 hours later.


It casually strolled up to the checkpoint and stepped across roadblocks to enter Laos.


Local broadcasters say elephants often look for food in neighboring areas during the cold winter months.
