The arrest of a mahout : After taking photos again in <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/toni_uni/sets/72157603255213793">PATA “ZOO”</a> I was confronted in Sukhumvit Rd. Soi 5 with running people and police officers of the police-force of Bangkok, named the Tessakit,  who were escorting afterwards a <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mahout" rel="nofollow">mahout</a> with his begging elephant. 
One of the officers has confiscated the hook which the mahouts are using to keep the animal under control. I could not communicate with the police because of my knowledge of the Thai language is (still) not sufficient. I suppose that the mahout mistreated his elephant with the bullhook or he threatened somebody on the road which is easy to believe knowing theirsometimes agressive behavior. 
I followed the escort of various officers on foot, of which one carried a riffle, by motorbike and a police car. 
Almost at the end of the trip, which ended at Lumpini Police station, another mahout with his baby-elephant was forced to join.
In front of the police station an officer started showering the animals with a hose and the mahouts had to empty their bags with the elephant-food they are selling to the tourists. 
After finishing my shots, which was making the mahout of  the baby angry again, I went home. 
They get a fine on the spot of 500 Baht (around 10 Euro) and to-morrow they are roaming around again.
