It’s always awkward being caught red-handed doing something that you shouldn’t do.
When faced with such a situation, all you usually want to do is hide from all that attention.
This was exactly what a baby elephant in Thailand did after being caught red-handed (or should we say, red-trunked?) eating sugarcane from a farm.
The cutest failed attempt
According to a report by Mothership quoting BoredPanda, the baby elephant tried to hide its bulky body behind a thin metal pole near the sugarcane field after being caught.
Understandably, hiding behind the pole just didn't work out for the poor elephant.
Take a look at this very cute picture:
A photo of the act went viral on social media, and netizens couldn’t help
but find the whole situation amusing.
We hope that no one harmed the little guy and he's safe with his family again.
