2 Wild Elephants Destroy Home Belongings, Vegetable Farm in Prachinburi; Nobody Injured

The elephants thought the village had food.

When: February 3rd, 2021

Where: Bo Thong subdistrict, Prachinburi province

Perpetrators: 2 wild elephants

Victims: crops, aircons

What: On the evening of February 3rd, 2021, two wild elephants walked into a village in the Bo Thong subdistrict of Prachinburi. They met with a local farmer who heard a commotion and went to investigate.

What he found were the two wild elephants standing about 10 meters away. Shocked, he ran up a tamarind tree to escape them.

While he was up the tree, the two elephants damaged his vegetable field. After causing damage to the crops, the two elephants wandered to the home of another man where they damaged 3 air conditioners, a rain collection system, and a tray for making merit at the temple.

Nobody was injured by the elephants.

The elephants thought that this area had a rich food source, and thus came into the area, as it is the nature of the elephants to do so, according to the report.
