Just assume that while sleep at night you sensed an intruder in your home, what would you do then? Whether to make a rescue call or to load your weapon? Yeah, I did the same but when I followed the sounds that were coming from the kitchen, what I have seen was just like a movie clip, but it was as real as my physical existence. A giant elephant was rummaging through my kitchen was not a total shock, but a real terror. It is a self-experienced unusual incident that happened with a Bangkok family.

“It came to cook again,” was the caption shot over the weekend of an elephant nosing its way into his kitchen.

“Likely driven by the midnight munchies, the massive animal pokes its head into Kittichai’s kitchen in the early hours of Sunday, using its trunk to find food. At one point, it picks up a plastic bag of liquid, considers it briefly, and then sticks it in its mouth — before the video cuts out.”
Kittichai and his wife live near a national park in western Thailand, by a lake where wild elephants often bathe while roaming in the jungle. He was tranquil by the mammoth mammal, identifying it as a common friend who frequent visit into homes in his village where it eats, leaves, and shoots off back into the jungle. So, it was his routine visit but the timing, and the way he hunts into the kitchen window was not welcomed by the dwellers.
The couple spelled out about the intruder and told AFP
“The elephant had destroyed our kitchen wall in May, creating an open-air kitchen concept evocative of a drive-through window. This weekend, its sole task was to find food. When it doesn´t get food, it just leaves on its own. I am already used to it coming, so I was not so worried.”
Wild elephants are a common sight in Thailand´s national parks and their surrounding areas, with farmers sometimes reporting incidents of their fruits and corn crops being eaten and destroyed by a hungry and sometimes annoyed herd.
