A Thai woman told her husband on Thursday that she was on her way to her mother's to do some washing.

 

Saichon Srisawat, 50, left with the clothes but when she didn't come back for dinner her husband Niphon Yimlamai, 71, was concerned. 

 

A search party was formed and next day his wife was found.

 

Nong Plap police discovered her naked in undergrowth by the side of the road near her mother's house in the Huay Sat Yai sub-district of Hua Hin that is within the Kaeng Krachan national park. 

 

She had been trampled to death by at least two elephants. Her arms and legs were all broken and her skull was fractured. There were elephant footprints all around. 

 

She had been dead about a day. The body was taken to Hua Hin hospital.

I'm not saying it isn't possibly BS as you state, but elephants are very smart creatures and learn from interaction with humans; to the extent that they have reactions to smell, gender, clothes, language and other factors.  Elephants mistreated by someone wearing the same colour clothes as the poor victim may react aggressively to the woman's clothing and take action.  There appears to be some truth in elephants never forget; it appears they also hold grudges.

When culling a herd of elephants (horrible but it is done to protect habitats and vegetation) it is essential that every single one is culled and none escape.  If individuals or small groups escape they have been known to take revenge.

Easy to check for rape to determine human involvement... though some of us guys are packin’ a bit more than normal. If there is tissue damage down there then we are going to have a different conversation.

Easy to check for rape to determine human involvement...  or elephant involvement.

Yes, you are correct, it would be in a developed nation. Here police investigations are "led by the desired outcome" rather than "evidence-led" so if the cops say it was elephants, it was elephants. That's the way it is.

About 500 people are killed by elephants around the world in a year and at the same time about 100 elephants are killed by humans in a day. The question arise who is the real evil?

On the other hand there is more to this story as the victim had no clothes on her.

observed the picture and the nature of the surrounding then a possible explaination is that she took her clotches off as it's no (human) public place and cleaned it with the other washings, and then be surprized

 

rgds,

Obviously the elephants stole her clothes.

Police are on the lookout for elephants wearing the ladies clothes - they will be then shipped of to inactive posts!

 

Not a nice way to die!  R.I.P.
