Elephants go wild attacking cars and stores in Thailand

An elephant was captured on camera stomping and ramming cars ferrying tourists through Thailand’s Khao Yai National Park. MCOT reported no injuries during the rampage, but two cars were damaged.

An elephant, though it’s not clear it was the same one, also attacked a shop and a restaurant in the park in recent days.

Park chief Kanchit Srinoppawan said the aggressive behaviour was the result of the mating season, according to the BBC.

Park officials have some advice for visitors: Don’t honk horns or flash lights at the animals. It may simply enrage the animals, according to MCOT. But tourists are still stopping to snap photos and videos of the potentially dangerous animals.

Elephants humping cars is hardly a new phenomenon. There was also this aroused elephant that was seemingly smitten with a car full of tourists in South Africa.
