Elephants go for stroll in national park, delight tourists and officials

A herd of wild elephants went for a walk on the road that runs through Khao Yai National Park in Nakhon Ratchasima province on Tuesday.

 

They walked together peacefully, with the bigger pachyderms apparently taking care of their little ones. 

 

Bigger elephants sandwiched small elephants as they walked on the road, probably because they wanted to make sure their little members were safe and sound. 

 

The sight of the elephants delighted and amazed tourists. 

 

A park official noticed the well-behaved herd and took their pictures to share on social media. 

 

After the photos and a video clip of the herd were uploaded to Facebook, it had been shared more than 2,300 times inside two hours.

Great photo. I have seen similar during the night whilst driving on Route 12 through Nam Nao National Park between Lomsak and Chum Phae in Isaan. Can be a bit scary when you suddenly see them in your headlights.

Only time I saw an elephant at night was its back end, it too was scary. You see, I was returning home from town and was "under the influence" on my motorbike. Ahead in the dark there was a red light swaying back and forth. What the...? The mahout had attacted a red light to the tail of his elephant!

Thoughtful mahout - some lorry drivers at night, please take note!!
