A German man suffered serious injuries after being attacked by an elephant in Pattaya on Saturday morning.

 

The 69 year old man was cycling along Soi Nong Mai Kaen in Nong Prue, which runs by an elephant village.

 

Thai media reported the man cycles the route everyday, only today, he was confronted by an elephant.

 

Despite locals and members of staff from the elephant village warning the man to leave the area, he stayed.

 

The elephant then became more distressed and charged, resulting in serious injuries to his German man’s leg.

 

The German man received first aid at the scene and was then transferred to hospital for further treatment.

 

Vets later managed to subdue the elephant by shooting him with a tranquilliser dart.

 

An investigation into why the elephant attacked the German has been launched.

 

The elephant had recently been brought to Pattaya to perform for tourists.

Elephants attack people in the wild too. In this story the cyclist refused to take advice from locals.

Those elephant villages are in the middle of lots of housing estates, it was only a matter of time before this happened.

There is no doubt it is wrong to

use this majestic beasts for tourist entertainment but the knuckle head was told to go away as he was making elephant uncomfortable but of course why would he listen? 

Maybe because he lives there and cycles down that soi every day ??
