    Very sad RIP to the woman and here's hoping the old German pulls through this as well.
    I imagine only eating sugar cane in the hot sun isn't the best thing for the creature, One must also consider whether the animal was in "rut" and if so did the mahout have the slightest foking clue how elephants behave while sexually frustrated.

    Any guesses as to what they will do with PlaiBoonChoo?

    With all that sugar cane grown in Thailand is Cane spirits available?
    They have a rum distillery on Koh Samui, I popped in past one day and ended up rather merry by the time I'd left.

    Well with 4 kids and 7 grandchildren i can assure you that excessive amounts of suger cause huge mood swings in children, i dont find it difficult to expect the same things can occur with animals.
    No mahut in Thailand is going to ration the sugar given to their charges if tourists keep pulling out the bhat.

    This is great.

    I'm doing an experiment.

    I've made a post on facebook asking all parents how hyper their kids get when they load them with sugar. The comments are rolling in. I'll give them a few hours before I post that link and call them liars.

    It all goes back to when we where cavemen,or pilgram fathers. Basically in the old days,sugar in nature was scarce,you had to eat a lot of vegatables to get a small amount of sugar. Sugar gives you go. It's the benzine of food. So in the old days,children got little sugar in their diet,but what little they got was instant fuel. No need to tell you how much sugar is going into our kids who still have caveman stomachs.

    Probably the most dangerous hunting in the world, is hunting African Cape Buffallo in sugar cane. The animals are unbelievable dangerous when feeding on grasses, and after a few days on sugar cane, they are really hyped up. Combining all that adrenline with vast amounts of sugar spells DANGER!

    Wandering down some soi in BK years ago in a state of semi inebriation, not really paying attention, suddenly there was a small elephant right there.
    I caught it's eye, made eye contact. It was the saddest thing.

    Same happened to me and a mate, walking pissed down a dark quiet soi in BKK, soi 18 in fact when I says to my mate 'watch out for the parked elephant' as he walked right into the arse of the thing. It was just standing there, all alone, never even flinched. We thought it was fake until about 30 seconds later when it moved it's footing and scared the shit out of us. Sad though. It was only about 6 feet tall.
