Notice To 'Telegraph' Subs...

..if you are going to write a story about Indian elephants, don't just grab the first image of those big, grey, floppy-eared things that you can find in your image bank.

Or else some smartarse is bound to point out that what you've got there is an African elephant...

I know, it's just something I'd expect to reportersfrom the 'Mail', which is forever giving 'animal interest' type stories to reporters who presumably can't even use 'Google' correctly...

But maybe it's immigrant African elephants on the rampage? Coming over here, pushing over our trees, leaving their footprints in our ghee, floating upside down in our raita, how many elephants can you get in a Tata Nano...
