(CBS) - In the aftermath of the terrible tornado disaster in Joplin, Mo., people from all over have been assisting in the recovery process. And as this video clearly shows, the assistance isn't just limited to people - watch and see what I mean.

The video was posted by YouTube user "mschark" who writes about the odd sighting:

While volunteering in Joplin May 28-29, we saw this very unusual sight. An Elephant being used to drag vehicles closer to the street so they can be removed. They were from the Picadilly Circus who where scheduled to perform but had to be cancel due to the venue being used as a hospital for Joplin victims.
