The management of a school in Tha Takiap district of Chachoengsao has called on authorities concerned to come to their rescue from wild elephants which, they said, might harm both students and teachers.

 

The plea followed a recent incident when about 40 wild elephants broke into the compound of Ang Sua Dam school in Tambon Klong Takrao apparently to search for food and water.

 

The elephants broke through a section of the school wall and caused damages to a water tank and pipes and trees, but did not harm anybody in the school.
