First, to set things straight, this elephant is not in musht and he is not angry.

He found a toy presented by Stupid people and he is playing with it.

Normally elephants at khao yai would not touch cars. This elephant lost his respect for cars after being hit by a tourist car a few years earlier.

Other elephants doing similar things started it because park staff chased them away to clear the road and touch the elephant with the car.

From what I observed since January in Khao Yai National Park, I do expect at least 3 or 4 “new” elephants to start damaging cars this year.
