A pet cat has been envisioned bravely chasing a four-ton elephant that was looking for food in its garden in Thailand.
Three-year-old moggy named Simba was awakened by the jumbo who tried to search the house in Nakhon Nayok for food on Tuesday evening.
The wild “watch kitten” was not intimidated by the huge animal, although it was many times its size and was able to kill people with one step.

An astonishing picture shows the tabby approaching the wild elephant, who turned on his heels and fled with an empty trunk after apparently cutting down trees in the garden that were shown splintered above the lawn.
Residents said the elephant was a 35-year-old “nuisance” named Pai Salick, who is known to trample people’s gardens in search of food.
The local park ranger Amnat Norasin said: “The elephant lives in the forest, but often goes through the houses at night to look for food. People know who he is.

Usually the elephant lives in a nearby forest, but it is often seen walking around the houses at night and is known to the locals
“The homeowner said his cat was aggressive and didn’t like other animals entering his territory.”
An estimated 2,000 elephants live in Thailand in the wild and a similar number in captivity. In the wild, they roam through the deep jungle and in the country’s protected national parks.
However, there is conflict when they come into contact with people who also use the fields of agriculture and food gathering.
But Pai Salick was left with an empty trunk after the cat, who dislikes other animals entering his territory, valiantly chased the elephant away
Elephants are a protected animal in Thailand. Her killing has a maximum sentence of up to three years and a fine of 1,000 baht (£ 25).
They are the national animal of the country and have contributed to Thai culture for many centuries, but became an critically endangered species in Thailand in 1986.
The elephant found in Thailand is the Indian elephant, a subspecies of the Asian elephant – recognizable by its African counterpart by its smaller ears.
You will never see me! Naughty baby elephant tries to hide behind a light pole after being caught eating sugar cane in a field in Thailand
A cheeky baby elephant was pictured trying to limp behind a light pole after being caught eating sugar cane in a field in Thailand.
The elephant was found in Ching Mai in the mountainous north of the country.
It apparently believed it might be hiding behind the narrow bar when it saw people approaching, although it was significantly wider and clearly visible.
When the people investigating the scene shone a light on their conspicuous hiding place, it apparently also stood completely still in the hope of not being discovered.
