Police in Thailand said a circus elephant stomped a man to death after the man apparently angered him.
Police say the 6-year-old elephant was resting in an open field when the man struck him. The elephant picked up the man with his trunk and hurled him on to the ground before stomping on him.
Police say the elephant kept rescuers back, running toward them in a threatening manner. The man was eventually taken to a hospital but died there from a cracked skull.
Hat tip to Kara!
