    Man Stomped to Death by Bull Elephant in Southern Thailand

    A a domesticated bull elephant chained alongside a canal has stomped a man collecting vegetables to death in Southern Thailand. The tragic event happened in Nop Phi Tham district of Nakhon Si Thammarat province.


    The man battered body was found by worried relatives near a canal late on Monday night.


    Police and rescue workers called to the scene said the 61-year-old was found in dense grass alongside the canal. He suffered multiple broken bones. His tricycle-cart was nearby, and so was a chained bull elephant.

    The animal was apparently in musth, which is an annual hormonal cycle that naturally occurs in adult male elephants. The male elephants testosterone increases significantly, which has huge impact on their behavior. Musth also causes male elephants to become very aggressive.


    Relatives told police that Somsak left home on Monday evening on his tricycle to collect vegetables for a meal. When night fell and he had not returned worried relatives went looking for him.


    They found his tricycle near the canal and discovered his body in the long grass.Police said it appeared man had been attacked by the bull elephant while collecting vegetables.


    After an autopsy to confirm the cause of death his body would be returned to relatives for funeral rites.


    Police Investigators would find the owner of the elephant, who would face legal action.

    Wonderful, so even though the bull was chained up, he's responsible because some nutter got too close...

    Cautionary tale for Simon43. Watch the dosage when mainline speedballing that testosterone hit into the dorsal artery of your throbbing winky Simon. Don't go trampling any peasants in a rage.
