Elephant stops traffic and steals a bale of hay from a passing lorry in Thailand

This naughty wild elephant filmed nicking hay from a passing lorry has become an internet sensation in Thailand.

It was filmed waiting on the side of a road that goes through the Khao Yai National Park in Nakhon Ratchasima province, central Thailand.

As he senses something is not quite right, the driver of the lorry stops and the gigantic creature wastes no time in nabbing a bale.

It then kicks it apart, playfully flinging bits of it over his back before chomping on some as a snack.

As the male elephant plays with its food, the lorry driver cautiously drives off, followed by a stream of vehicles.

Park boss Kanchit Srinoppawan said he had asked an employee to go and buy the hay to help mark out the route for a marathon that was due to take place in the area.

He said he was surprised the elephant had picked exactly the right moment to wait by the road.

Indian elephants like this one are free to roam around Khao Yai National Park.

Other famous encounters with them include one incident in January 2015 when an elephant crushed a car in a bid to mate with it.

Surprisingly, the Mercedes driver was pleased, saying it was a sign of good luck.

But in October that year a motorcyclist said he was lucky to have escaped with his life after being cornered by a herd of elephants.
