I feel like this act of bravery should earn them some clemency.

Ah, push it. Push it good. (via NPSO)

An 18-wheeler truck became stuck as the driver pulled off of Interstate 49 near the Powhatan exit. The shoulder had softened due to some recent rains.

The driver called for assistance, and according to the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff's Office, police found two elephants propping the vehicle up so that it wouldn't tip over.

Apparently, the pachyderms were cargo when the truck went off the road, traveling from Florida to a circus in Dallas. Although it isn't explained in the report, they must have been let out, I presume by the driver/handler out of fear that they might tip with the truck.
