A mahout is, in politically correct terms an elephant trainer. In my terms, a mahout is a piece of shit animal abuser who takes an elephant forcefully removed from its natural habitat and tortures him into obedience. Such submitted elephant is then used like a fucking clown to earn his master money. In other words, a dead mahout is a good mahout.
This video shows what it looks like when an elephant submitted to torture and forced to behave unnaturally in unnatural environments has had enough. Confused and enraged, the elephant trampled his keeper to death and flung him in the air like a ragdoll.
The video was filmed on December 19, 2012 in Hua Hin, which after Pattaya and Phuket is the third most popular foreigner rip-off central in Thailand. That also means that Hua Hin is the third most hookers filled town in Thailand. And because it’s built to attract foreigners, they also have “attractions” involving elephants there.
The mahout, identified as 57 year old Rat Tajak was trampled to death by a bull elephant named Plai Si Dor. Rat Tajak was Plai Si Dor’s handler. The elephant was shot with several tranquilizer darts but they had no effects on him. It took other handlers 6 hours to bring him under control.
By that time, the elephant had crushed his handler’s skull, damaged several cars and repeatedly charged onlookers who were on the farm where these animals are held aplenty.
By the sound of it, Thais did not kill the animal. Enraged or not, the elephant must have had high enough value for them to spare his life. Although I can imagine that by keeping him alive, the shits will subject him to even harsher torture than before, knowing that he’d gone on rampage.
