A 56-year-old Thai wife of a farang was fatally gored by a 2-year-old elephant on Maerampung beach. She was buying sugar cane to feed the elephant when it attacked her. The mahout said the hot weather had crazed the normally docile beast. The mahout and the elephant’s owner will be prosecuted by police.

RAYONG – March 4, 2013 [PDN]; At 5:30 p.m., a report of an elephant killing a Thai female tourist was received by Pol. Lt. Capt. Thawatch Norsingha, Muangrayong police station, Rayong.

Rescuers from Sawangpornkusol foundation Rayong reported that a 2-year-old elephant went insane and used its tusk to gore a Thai tourist on Maerampung beach. The victim was severely injured and died in Rayong hospital.

Police officers arriving at the scene found the elephant, named Plai Boonchoo, 2 years old, was being chained on his front legs in Khaosap temple, Pae, Muang. The elephant was acting insane, whining loudly all the time and shocking tourists, who quickly fled because they were afraid the elephant would kill more people.

Officers went to the hospital emergency room to check on the victim, and discovered she had died from her injuries. Her collarbones were broken, and her lungs had been pierced, with blood shed inside her rib cage area. The victim was identified as Mrs. Sairung Kraja, 56 years old. Standing sadly near her body was her husband, Mr. Helmut Schoeler , 63 years old, nationality German.

Mr. Helmut told police that he and his wife were staying at the Rayong beach hotel on Maerampueng beach. He brought his wife to the beach, and they saw the mahout who came along with the elephant to beg for food, and was selling the sugar cane to feed the animal.

Yeah I avoid them completely now,

 

there's one huge one and a baby wandering around here.

 

If the big one went crazy nothing short of a multiple gun shots would stop it!

 

That they are allowed to use them like that is a national shame.

That's a reason why I avoid almost everything that involves animals in Asian countries.

For them, animals are just objects used to gain money. No matter how they suffer.

 

Don't feed anymore animals (or pay to make pictures) means no more captured animals to make money out of them.

I guess most elephants are not dangerous. But it just takes one to do a lot of damage...

I have never fed or gone on elephant rides in Thailand. They are not domesticated animals (though not wild either). They can kill you so easily not even being aggressive, just shifting position or slipping over.

Many a time I'd be drinking in a beer bar minding my own business and I'd sense that someone or something was behind me and I'd look around and see this fucking huge 4 ton elephant right behind me. I often thought that it was only a matter of time before someone got squashed, so this news story is sadly not much of a surprise.
