Hungry wild elephant tries to enter grocery store to search for food


This is the shocking moment a hungry wild elephant tried to enter a grocery store to search for food.

Footage shows the jumbo finding a way to open the gates leading to the shop in Satun province, southern Thailand on June 26.

Store owner Somjit Saei said the elephant failed to enter the property and take food because it arrived before opening time.

She said: ‘The animal was not able to enter because the gate was still closed. I felt bad for it but our store could be damaged if I let it in.’

The elephant eventually gave up and walked to the direction of the forest.
