Elephants rampage through Rayong fried-banana stall

The owner of a roadside stall in Rayong that sells kluay thod (fried bananas) arrived at work on Wednesday morning to find it destroyed and almost her entire stock of bananas pilfered.

People living nearby told her she was the victims of a gang of hungry elephants.

The neighbours had seen a herd of about 10 pachyderm perpetrators ransack the shop and gobble down nearly 200 kilograms of bananas.

Somjai Naphom, 45, could only fume amid the wreckage of her stall in front of Huay Thab Mon School in Moo 1 in Khao Chamao district’s Tambon Huay Thab Mon.

Somjai said she’d bought 200kg of banana to fry and sell and was left with only a few bunches.

Officials at adjoining Khao Chamao-Khao Wong National Park said they’d try to locate the elephant marauders and herd them deeper into the woods.
