An elephant broke into a woman's home recently in search of food. The incident occurred in the middle of the night on Saturday, June 20, 2021.
According to the woman whose home was affected, the wild Asian elephant gained access through an unfixed opening in the kitchen, CNN reports.
The elephant was said to have used its trunk to ransack the kitchen which only had salt in it.
The Thailand resident named Ratchadawan Puengprasoppon said:
"We were sleeping and woke up by a sound inside our kitchen. So, we rushed downstairs and saw this elephant poked its head into our kitchen where the wall was broken.
"I have seen elephants roaming around our town looking for food since I was young. But this is the first time they actually damaged my house."
Social media reacts to the development
Pictures of the moment the elephant crashed in were shared on Facebook by CGTN and generated mixed reactions.
Le Ozinuel said:
"The elephant should be in his wide life park.
"Though we have giraffes and elephants in many quantities roaming in Africa, but we take them where they supposed to stay."
Agbelekale Medinat Abimbola commented:
"Thank God it is not the elephant in front of ''First Bank Nig.'' What would have happened to my balance of 5200 if the elephant swallow the money in the strong room."
Jethro Emmanuel Kolleh stated:
"No no, he should not be in the kitchen in such form and manner. The last time I checked, he was chopped in pieces not standing giganticly as that.
"By the way, he's eating all the food in the zoo?"
