Officials have investigated social media complaints about elephants in the water and the taking of photos with tourists on Tri Trang beach. Officials haven’t arrested anyone at this stage.

 

The issue about elephants playing in the shallows with tourist went viral in local social media as netizens made comments ranging from the “elephants are damaging the coral” and the “elephants were being tortured”.

 

Yesterday officials from the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources investigated the issue. They say that any coral is about 50 metres from the shore, far from any possible damage from baby elephant feet.

You wouldn't get 'em in the sea if it were Patt's .. 

If by some miracle you did, when they came out there's no way on earth anyone could describe any of them as a 'white elephant'.

"....complaints of elephants on Phuket beach"

What sort of complaints did the elephants make? Too much fecal matter in the water? Tourists too fat? "Netizens" say water buffalo had to be retired... couldn't carry that much weight

Put those responsible in jail!
When do you start banning horses on the beaches of Hua Hin and Cha Am?
