Looks like this time the grass was not just wiped out but also washed away :)

Baejaar, I think the African saying goes: When elephants fight, it's the grass that suffers.

Btw, have you heard of this: The ear of the Indian elephant looks like India, while that of the African elephant looks like Africa!
