RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) - Any given day you can see Dodge Rams, Ford Mustangs or even a Jaguar on the streets of downtown Richmond. Those, of course, are all motor vehicles named after animals. Tuesday morning the streets were filled with elephants. Not a car named elephant, but the real deal.

Trains carrying the elephants arrived in town around midnight. The animals were then walked from the train yard in South Richmond, across the Manchester Bridge and up to the Richmond Coliseum. [Click for pictures]

The elephants are in town with the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® circus which plays at the coliseum through Sunday.
