A male elephant destroyed a park-operated restaurant in Khao Yai National Park yesterday.
Park officers assume the elephant, called “Duan” by some, was hungry when he became the third elephant to go on a rampage at the park by smashing the windows and walls and generally looting the place Monday, according to Kanchit Srinoppawan, Head of Khao Yai staff members.
Staff took over three hours to shoo Duan the elephant, believed to be about 30, back to the forest. However, he came back again at 9am, so officers decided to feed it.
After the elephant was full, they shooed him back to the forest for a second time.
