Greedy wild elephant stops passing trucks to steal sugarcane

The 35-year-old jumbo nicknamed ‘Fatty’ by locals emerged from the forest on a road in Chachoengsao province, Thailand, on December 29.

He walked in front of the vehicles forcing them to slow down, then reached up to the sweet-smelling cargo in their trailers.

Footage shows the bull gorging on the sweet snacks freshly harvested from nearby fields before they arrive at factories to make sugar. Some truck drivers even had to swerve into the opposite lane to avoid being raided by the powerful beast.
