"No one has figured out where the drunken elephant photos came from, but a Chinese news report debunked the viral posts: While elephants did recently come through a village in Yunnan Province, China, their presence isn't out of the norm, they aren't the elephants in the viral photos, and they didn't get drunk and pass out in a tea field."

"The summer adult has a chocolate-brown head (not black, although does look black from a distance), pale grey body, black tips to the primary wing feathers, and red bill and legs. The hood is lost in winter, leaving just two dark spots. Immature birds have a mottled pattern of brown spots over most of the body.
This species takes two years to reach maturity. First-year birds have a black terminal tail band, more dark areas in the wings, and, in summer, a less fully developed dark hood."

@tigertiger there's a link to the Yunnan Nationalities Village website about dragon boat races in last year's gokunming article, doesn't seem erroneous
