Surat Kaenthip, a 30-year-old air conditioner repairman, had hit the six-year-old elephant while he was resting in an open field Friday in Rayong province, 90 miles east of Bangkok, said police Lt. Col. Thanit Saeniwong na Ayuddhaya.

Oh, sure, that's what they say now but I betcha there was a back massage sign, 6 rupies, next to that elephant before this happened...

(when good business ideas go bad)

Oh, fine, sorry about the poor humor, and prayers and thoughts for the family, but when you provoke a 4 ton animal, you run the risk that perhaps it might notice that you weigh, you know, like nothing, and stay crunchy in milk.

I hope the elephant gets prosecuted. Sounds like one of those hate crime to me.

"Surat Kaenthip, a 30-year-old air conditioner repairman, had hit tried to have sex with the six-year-old elephant while he was resting in an open field

sounds more believable.

The rumor was it offered a turnip to the elephant.

I truly understand the elephant's reaction to all this.

Ava was last seen burning very expensive high octane turnip bio fuel that should have been from Alaska as the elephant stomped the poor guy.

Heh heh heh......

I heard cutting off your arm was a bit difficult, even for a turnip.

Good. I've watched Animal Planet and other shows on how those circus freak animal "care" takers everywhere in the world abuse elephants and other animals to make them "entertain" the audience.

If I had children I'd never take them to the circus for this reason.

They poke the animals in the body and up the butt with sharp objects.

Zero sympathy from me for this guy. There is only so much stress and provocation these animals can take before something like this happens.

I hate people who abuse animals.
