The tragedy occurred in the afternoon on Thursday, said the Agency affected tourists Tatiana and Igor, who asked not to call them names. «He ended the tour, everything is already off the elephants. Guys from Russia, who was riding on the first elephant, has safely got off, and suddenly the elephant went berserk and attacked the German tourist who took pictures of him. The elephant trampled to death a German in front of everyone», — said the interlocutor of the Agency.

«The second elephant on which we sat, frightened and began to kick and stand on their hind legs, and then ran. The conductor, who since his tears, shouted to us that we immediately jumped. We jumped. I was lucky, I landed on the grass, and her husband jump when touched the bench on which we are before it was sitting on the back of an elephant. This bench was hanging on the side of the elephant from side to side and very hard hit her husband in the ribs. It is also fortunate that the husband, after this blow, fell to the grass. If the elephant had carried him a few meters, there has begun the stones, and then the bruised ribs would not get away with it» — said Tatiana.

    If all the tourists refused to go & ride these elephants, or see the dolphins in seaworld, or go to circuses, or go & take selphies with tigers, etc etc etc ……. then this sort of thing will not happen. Do not go to these places & campaign to shut them down instead!
