UPDATE
November 1, 2019
Elephants trample to death three Cambodian migrant workers
Thai authorities have found three bodies of Cambodian workers who were suspected to have been trampled to death by a herd of wild elephants at a plantation in Chachoengsao province’s Thatakeap district.

Prak Pheaktra, a Cambodian translator for Thai authorities told Khmer Times that one among the three was identified as Ath Sok, 29y, from Prey Veng province.

Mr Pheaktra said Mr Sok was found dead on Thursday night at a hut that was completely destroyed. He added that the bodies of two other Cambodians were found today morning about 200 meters away.

He said Thai police identified the duo as a man and a woman but they have yet to identify the as the faces were badly disfigured.

“The police believe that the three victims could have been killed by a herd of about 20 wild elephants which attacked the huts on Wednesday night. Others might have run during the attack. Police are still searching for them,” Mr Pheaktra said.

Ohfuck! Poor bastards,
Toiling away for the rainy season in remote muddy fields, sleeping with the mozzies in palm thatch huts, away from home to feed their dirt poor families. I hope someone will step up to help those families now.

And hopefully the Thais will have a fairly sophisticated view on how to deal with the elephants.

THAILAND: There was another elephant attack on a family of Cambodian migrant workers reported on 6 September, 2020. The attack was apparently triggered by the baby's cries.

Cambodian family seriously injured after wild elephant went on rampage in Rayong
by Mark KellySeptember 8, 2020

A Cambodian family of three, including father Wanna, mother Tyland, and a one-month-old boy named Titi, were rushed to a nearby hospital after encountering an elephant attack at a rubber tree plantation in Rayong last night, September 6.

Their coworker, who was only named as Sam, told officers of Nam Pen Police Station that the distressed elephant was passing by their plantation campsite where they were resting. It suddenly panicked after overhearing the baby crying and started to aggressively trample on the site, causing workers to flee in panic.

Unfortunately, the family did not make it in time as the animal had directly headed towards their tent and angrily destroyed the place. The workers immediately called the police and rescue workers chased after the elephant who had left the scene into the woods.

Wanna, 35, was injured with severe stomach and chest pain while his wife Tyland was tragically found with misshapen bones in her arm and leg. The baby boy was seen suffering from possibly throat wounds.
