New Delhi (Sputnik): While humans are divided by geographical boundaries across the globe, animals cannot be divided by caste, religion, race, or even boundaries between two countries. One such group of "illegal immigrants" was even welcomed by Indians with open arms.

A herd of elephants was warmly welcomed by social media users after a video clip of them breaking open a fence and walking through it into India from Bangladesh went viral on Twitter.

The incident even melted the hearts of troops deployed along the India-Bangladesh border in Meghalaya to keep a strict vigil on trespassers. All they did was to watch them while filming the video.

At least a dozen elephants entered India through the forest spread between the two countries in the Garo Hill region.
