In a bizarre incident from Thailand, an elephant who was hungry broke into a house in search of food. Ratchadawan Puengprasoppon, a resident of the Hua Hin district's Chalermkiatpattana village in Thailand, heard a noise in the kitchen at her home in the early hours of Saturday morning. 

She woke up and headed straight to check and found an elephant poking through the wall in search of food.

As per the media reports, the male elephant named Boonchuay rummaged through the kitchen drawers in order to look for food and chewed on a plastic bag full of rice.

The owner of the house recorded the incident on her phone. The video was shared on Twitter from a verified handle 'NowThis'. The video shows the animal rummaging through the kitchen drawers causing items to drop and eventually shoving a bag of rice in its mouth.

As the video went viral, netizens reacted in their own ways, some joking about the 'elephant in the room'. Many were astounded that this was a common phenomenon in Thailand, while others couldn't help but come up with memes of the elephant in the kitchen.

According to the report, Boonchuay, the elephant, lives in the nearby Kaeng Krachan national park and visits the village frequently.

The elephant had come to the Puengprasoppon's house about two months ago as well, reported New York Post. Thankfully, it didn't cause any damage back then. As per the report, the elephant-sized hole in their broken wall would take about 50,000 baht (around 1.16 lakh) to repair.

Wildlife officials have suggested Puengprasoppon to keep food out of the kitchen to prevent similar incidents in the future as the smell attracts animals.
