Hungry Elephant Wanders On To Family’s Driveway In Search Of Food



Hungry Elephant Wanders Onto Family's Driveway In Search Of Food

A hungry grey elephant was caught on camera wandering onto a family’s driveway while searching for food in Chanthaburi province.

The homeowner heard his pet dogs barking so looked up from the balcony where he was resting and was shocked to see a wild elephant surveying the property for something to eat.

CCTV footage shows the three metre-tall jumbo inspecting the garage before leaving empty-trunked a few moments later.

Satap Mochit, 56, said he did not make a noise nor tried to scare the elephant away because he could anger the huge and hungry Jumbo.

He said: “Sometimes elephants visit our garden and the neighbour’s houses to look for bananas, coconuts, and rice. This time though, it walked much closer to the house.”

In the morning, Satap found huge footprints in the garden and a huge pile of elephant dung which they cleaned afterwards.

There were also several broken tree branches and scratches on the car where the elephant had rubbed against it before walking away.

An estimated 2,000 elephants are living in the wild in Thailand and a similar number in captivity. In the wild, they roam through the deep jungle and in the country’s protected national parks.

However, there is a conflict when they come in contact with humans who also use the area of farming and gathering food.

Elephants are a protected animal in Thailand and killing them carries a maximum prison term of up to three years and a fine of 1,000 baht.
