If I needed to move an elephant from Warrington to Peterborough, would I be able to ride it there?

I know it is illegal to ride an elephant on the motorway, so it would be using A and B roads only. Is riding an elephant the same as riding a horse in the eyes of the law?

    I would love to know the background to this. Also, I feel that this is a question for the local authorities, not for random people on the internet. Commented Apr 7, 2020 at 7:46

    An elephant walks at about 4.5mph. Warrington to Peterborough is about 135 miles. That's about 30 hours of travel, plus breaks for rest / food / water. Purely from a matter of animal welfare, I would strongly suggest hiring a truck. Commented Apr 7, 2020 at 8:46
