KILLER ELEPHANT SAVED FROM DEATH

On 21 August 2007, BoonSeuhm aged 68 came to the Kraal just days after she killed a man. BoonSeuhm remembered the man in question who had taunted her 10 years ago with firecrackers and withholding food. The same man came back and taunted her again and she killed him.  

She was to be shot as the owner could no longer keep her. Previously he had decided that he did not want to sell her to a nearby rubber plantation to work, due to her age. BoonSeuhm's owner heard about our program to retire old elephants and how the Kraal had retrained killer elephants in the past and given them a new life. This was a happy alternative for him, BoonSeuhm and us here at the Kraal. BoonSeuhm can now be assured of a happy caring retirement

 

 

        

WILD ELEPHANT RESCUE

A team of expert mahouts go to Khun Song to assist with hoisting an injured elephant out of the mud wallow he created when he collapsed and could not get up. It is thought the bull elephant was about 50 years old and had been attacked by another bull. 

          


    

  

  

 

The Royal Elephant Kraal takes care of sick, abused, injured and killer bull elephants and rehabilitates them.

Set alight in a malicious act of cruelty, this elephant was in a bad way when it arrived at the Royal Elephant Kraal village. Fortunately the elephant made a full recovery.

 

This wild elephant was found caught in a poachers snare. Due to the horrific extent of its injuries, it was estimated it had been suffering with this snare for about one month. It was caught up and taken to the Kraal where intensive care was provided for six months. Tragically due to the horrendous extent of its injury and the associated problems of infection and the damage that had created the elephant did not survive.
