Don't let your drunken elephant roam the streets of Natchez, Miss.

The Natchez Democrat newspaper reports an anti-drunken elephant law dating back to 1810 is still on the books.

According to Helen Smith, the law started with a local elephant show.

Apparently the elephant that a Mr. Texada was going to exhibit got into some beer.

Smith and her husband now own the historic Texada home.
