Size, of course, is important. But it is even more important to understand your rightness and unwillingness to let the offender off his offense. Even if he’s a thousand times bigger than you, in the truest sense. The other day in Thailand there was an instructive story with a kitten and an elephant.
Imagine that you wake up in the middle of the night from the noise and see something gray and with a tail, but not a mouse
Residents of Nakhon Nayok province are well aware of this villainous elephant-like face. The animal’s name is Pai Salik, he is an inveterate hooligan and a glutton, formally a wild elephant, but he has long adapted to enjoy the benefits of civilization — he breaks into villages and destroys sheds in search of food. The elephant is already 35 years old, it weighs more than 4 tons and has long believed in its impunity.
Pai Salik looks at you as a source of food
The trouble is not even that it is really dangerous to conflict with such a giant, there are only 2,000 wild elephants left in Thailand and harming at least one is a sure way to end up in prison. It seems that Pai Salik is smart enough to understand this, and therefore he is getting impudent. But this time he got into the territory of Simba, a three-year-old cat who can’t stand uninvited guests. Yes, three years is not a kitten, but compared to 4 tons of elephant, what difference does it make? But the thing is that Simba is not timid.
It is reported that Simba easily drove Pai Salik away, but the owners wisely did not follow them and did not take more photos.
