The head of the Kaeng Krachan national park in Phetchaburi has warned the public to take care after a video showed an elephant in musth.

 

An elephant in musth is believed to have an up to six times rise in reproductive hormones. 

 

They can become dangerous to their own kind as well as humans during this period that can last for many weeks. 

 

The video showed a violent altercation between two elephants - one a bull elephant the other of unspecified gender - on the "Nong Plub - Huay Sat Yai" Road in the national park.

 

Mana Phermphoon warned the public to be on the lookout as his staff try to help the situation by isolating the animal.

 

Sometimes elephants in musth are denied food and water in an effort to calm them down. Many zookeepers have been killed and animals in the wild also present serious problems.
