Pattaya police were alerted at 12.50 am on Wednesday to send help to a house on the opposite side of French Garden in the Jomtien Niwet housing estate in Moo 12 village in Tambon Nong Pleu in Chon Buri’s Bang Lamung district.

 

The Norwegian, 57, was waiting inside his house with his Thai transvestite companion. The Norwegian had a big cut on his head and rescuers from a foundation gave him first aid and sent him to a hospital.

 

The companion, Suwit Moomanee, said the Norwegian man walked across the road to the bar to ask its staff to turn down the volume of the music and tell the patrons to lower their voices, but he was beaten up.

 

Suwit said the bar always stayed open to 2am or 3 am and played loud music. Its patrons, especially foreigners, made a lot of noise, preventing people in the neighbourhood from sleeping.

 

When police checked the bar, its employees denied that they assaulted the Norwegian. Police then took the bar manager to Pattaya police station for further questioning.

Siamchon News

 

A Chinese tour guide was killed by an elephant yesterday after a tourist "behaving badly" enraged an elephant at a Pattaya camp.

 

The 17 year old male elephant called Uthen was carrying two tourists on its back near a group of other tourists.

 

One of the tourists on the ground thought it was funny to pull its tail and it started charging, reported Siam Chon News.

 

Tour guide leader Mr He Yongjie was trying to get his clients clear of the elephant but was hit and kicked. He died at the scene and was covered in a white cloth.

 

One tourist was tossed off the elephant - another held on before mahout U Rungram managed to calm the elephant.

 

Two other people who fell in the melee were taken to hospital.

 

Sakda in charge of safety at the Sam Liam Thong Kham (Golden Triangle) Camp said that they tried to get the tourists on the ground to safety but there was a lot of them and in the confusion everyone ran in different directions.

 

The mahout blamed one of the tourists for bad behavior in pulling the tail of the elephant enraging it.

 

Huay Yai police are continuing their investigation.

Yes I saw that, tourists eh?

 

Wot a bunch of morons.

 

I went on an Elephant trek in Laos, and the mahouts don't use pointed sticks or hooks, just persuasion and calm words.

 

I never thought for a moment that the Elephants would misbehave...

 

MLG even 'drove' the elephant for a few Kms.

That bridge went down like a house of cards in a light breeze...

 

Lots of 'som nam na' in there, plus a little 'there but for the grace of god go I...'

Some years back Chinese tourists at a Pattaya show teased an elephant in must (which really had no business working) until it charged into the spectators, fatally goring an inoffensive woman (American, I think) with a tusk. Are the Chinese tourists all brain dead douche bags, or does it just seem that way?

 

Even Hong Kong Chinese hate the mainlanders:
