Elephant Poo Explodes In Vet's Face As He Helps Solve Animal's Constipation

While you might think it's the ideal job for anyone who loves hanging out with cuddly animals, being a vet isn't always what it's cracked up to be. If you're still unsure, though, take a look at what happened to Dr Tom when he was sent to treat constipated elephant Lana at the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai, northern Thailand - and ended up covered in excrement.

Loading…

The sizeable mammal was suffering with a severe case of blockage, which can be fatal if left untreated.

So Dr Tom came to the rescue, but after removing a huge portion of poo trapped in her anus, the floodgates opened and the caring vet was hit square in the face by a yellowish deluge.

The hilarious - but also quite awful - clip was shared on Instagram, and has since being viewed over 45,000 times, with people impressed and disgusted in equal measure by what they witnessed.

But despite the horrific sight, many have praised Dr Tom for doing his bit and relieving poor Lana.

Commenting on the video, one person said: "Oh wow, that's a rough day at work... but so important. the relief that team brought to the elephant truly was life-saving."

"Oh wow hahaha it's so funny but so amazing what you have done to help this beautiful elephant! Well done!" praised another.

While a third chimed in with: "Love that dedication, doctor!!"

According to the Samui Elephant Sanctuary, Lana is now feeling much better since being treated. So it's good to see that Dr Tom's efforts were not in vain.

In other scatological news, a police suspect had an absolute stinker when he fled to try and evade capture.

Cops shared a hilarious image showing how the suspect ended up covered in cow dung after jumping in a slurry pit to escape arrest.

Police posted the image of the daring escapade online, which came about after they spotted the man driving a stolen vehicle.

The arrest operation soon turned into a rescue mission however, as the Sussex Police revealed that by the time they'd caught up with the hapless man he was 'neck deep' in the excrement. Ugh.

But while being covered in poop isn't always the most positive of experiences, most would almost certainly see it as a negative, it didn't hinder the sale of a house that was covered in the stuff.

Last year, the property, in Devon, was put on the market for the bargain basement price of £45,000 but ended up being sold to property developers John and Guy Jones for £100,000.

The Joneses got the house at auction in April 2019 and said they 'fancied the challenge' of doing it up. Well, that's one way of putting it.

Guy said: "I just wish that less people had seen it. I could have got it a bit cheaper."

Although he admitted it would be a 'nightmare' to clean up, he also revealed he was 'looking forward' to getting stuck in - rather you than me, mate.
