Why is this news? These things happen all day every day on the island. 
Can you do some journalism and see whether the meddling of some farangs actually has improved the life of a baby elephant? Or just made the problem out of sight and out of mind?

No ...only in Thailand are the vehicles and roads and weather responsible for accidents.  I think the Thai education system teaches that whenever someone is writing a story, you should never form your sentence so it might imply that Thais had any responsibility in any negative event. The other lesson taught is to always point the finger at someone else, especially foreigners if possible.
