elephantThailand – Thailand’s use of elephants as tourist attractions has come under fire yet again after an animal killed its keeper and ran off with a family still on its back during a jungle tour in Chiang Mai.

The elephant reportedly ‘went berserk’, during a group ride on Wednesday, attacking and killing its rider and taking off into the jungle with three terrified Chinese tourists, police said

The Chinese family, two parents and their young child, were rescued soon after as other elephant keepers came to the rescue. 

Police said the incident took place at 9.30am local time as a Chinese family of three – a father, mother and a young child – took a ride on the back of a male elephant.  More
