A wild elephant in the area of the Kaeng Krachan national park is facing a fate usually reserved for corrupt Thai officials. 

 

A transfer. 

 

On Wednesday night "Bunmee" popped into a convenience store in Huay Sat Yai and demolished it.

The locals have been complaining about the pachyderm's antics for years but they might have expected it - Huay Sat Yai can be translated as "The Creek of Large Animals". 

 

Yesterday Hua Hin district chief Thanon Phanpheephat went with a large entourage of officials to see the shop owner Thanita and three other home owners who suffered damage at the hands of "Bunmee" who locals call by the more disparaging name of "Ai Duan".

Thanon is in touch with the park chief and other officials to look into a transfer for the elephant who has damaged things like durian trees and even threatened motorists on the roads.

They are now looking for a suitable "inactive post" where Bunmee will cause less trouble.
