Elephants break into Chonburi resident’s home looking for food – VIDEO


Elephants have visited a local residents kitchen to search for bakery items in rural Chonburi earlier this week.

Ms. Worawan Sriwarunnon, 37, told The Pattaya News, “On Wednesday night I was making bakery items in the kitchen at night when two elephants were walking nearby.”

“One of the elephants took some bread and opened a sugar jar. The elephants ate sugar and salt. Thankfully, they were not aggressive.”

“Last weekend, I saw an elephant was playing in a lagoon nearby.”

“I have recorded them on videos.”

Local residents have called for authorities to help them with these elephants and move them to less populated areas. There have been multiple incidents with elephants in rural Chonburi in the past few months.
