According to police, an elephant in Thailand ripped its handler in half “due to the heat caused it to go crazy.”
Investigators have a strong suspicion that the animal became agitated due to the blistering heat as it was delivering rubberwood on a plantation in the province of Phang Nga.
It has been said that the elephant, who was 20 years old, attacked Supachai Wongfaed, who was 32 years old, with his tusks and tore him apart.
The police, the leader of the community, and rescue personnel came upon him to find him hacked in half and lying in a pool of his blood.
The elephant’s body was found after officials in charge of cattle had shot him with a dart containing a tranquilizer.
According to Thaiger, his body was transported to his family so that they could carry out the necessary funeral ceremonies.
Elephants are generally peaceful animals, but they are capable of violent behaviour if they perceive that they are being harassed, powerless, or are in danger.
According to environmental, social scientist Niki Rust, who specialises in the conflict between humans and elephants, elephants do not get more violent when the temperature rises, despite what the authorities say.
