Video: Elephant strikes: Tourists take an early bath in Chiang Mai

 

4pm.jpg

 

Some tourists taking a scenic trip down a river in Chiang Mai did not bargain for the antics of a young elephant. 

 

Their delight at seeing the juvenile elephant soon turned to shrieks of horror as one of two rafts was upturned by the playful pachyderm. 

 

The incident happened on February 1st in the Mae Wang area of the northern Thai province.

 

One female tourist was taken to hospital after her knee hit a rock. 

 

The owner of the elephant sent a representative to the hospital to pay the bills. 

 

The rest of the tourists managed to swim and clamber to the safety of the bank.

He wants a pay rise.

Well done that elephant.... Poor creatures being used to entertain tourists and make money.

Looks like that 1 had enough, it along with all the others held in captivity should be allowed back in the wild.

It's not the people on the rafts fault about the elephant or the conditions its living in.. they were just on a bamboo raft having fun!

We need an influx of elephants, that were raised in nudist colonies, who want to show dress wearing Nordic nubiles the joys of naturism.

I want to know who is going to pay for the food, maintenance and upkeep of the thousands of elephants in Thailand if they cannot attract the tourist dollars? Bearing in mind that most tourists will want an up-close experience with the elephants.. not observing them in their natural habitat from a safe distance (of course they can't actually all live in their natural habitat now, as a result of massive deforestation)

 

According to Performing Animal Welfare Society website, each elephant will cost $70,000 annually!

Why do elephants paint their balls red?

So they can hide in apple trees.

How did Tarzan die?

Picking apples.
