It happens again.
On monday a 45 year old man died after an attack from wild elephants in the north-eastern corner of Kui-Buri NP near the Pranburi River.

A herd of 10 wild elephants come close to a pineapple field. Farmers call the NP-staff and border police.
A group of 20 men (NP Ranger and border police) scare away the elephants back to the forest.
One elephant was separated from the group and still try to eat pineapple. 4 men make some noise in the hope that the elephant also turn back to the forest. But the elephant get angry and try to attack the men. They run away but the 45 year old policeofficer stumbles, fall down and the elephant step the man on chest and head.
Just a warning shot frightened the elephant and he followed his herd into the forest.
Unfortunatly there was no chance for the man. His injury were to bad. He died on the way into the hospital.
