An elephant that has starred in feature films and commercials has crushed its owner to death in Thailand, zoo officials say, setting off fresh debate over the kingdom’s animal tourism industry. The accident took place on Monday morning in the northern city of Chiang Mai, just after the owner, Somsak Riengngen, unchained the five-tonne elephant, called Ekasit.
