British Tourist FIONA CHILDS Attacked by Water Buffalo on Koh Rong Island

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Awww, Fiona Childs has a heart of gold:

"A BRITISH woman gored by a rogue water buffalo on a Cambodian island has said she does not want the animal to "come to any harm". Fiona Childs was on holiday on Koh Rong Samloem when she was attacked on Tuesday."

That's very compassionate of her to say, considering she's on the mainland by now and unlikely to ever be back or even see another water-buffalo. Meanwhile the rogue animal could easily attack or kill anyone else.
Silence, exile, and cunning.

I would have been eating buffalo burgers for breakfast, lunch and dinner for the next straight month.

What is the nationality of the rogue water buffalo?

Did it come from Vietnam?

Or is it a khmer rogue water buffalo?
