Dok Ngern was rescued in December 2006 from elephant show and street begging. Like all captive working elephants, Dok Ngern had a traumatic childhood. She was forced to learn demeaning circus tricks and when she could not take it, she attacked and injured her trainer. The owner decided to sell her as she grew bigger and she would become more difficult to handle. The freedom life started at ENP, Dok Ngern is now a member of our largest family group. She has first son named Chang Yim, second daughter named Dok Mai and the last is a boy named Dok rak who was born in April 2016. We’d love to see Dok Ngern being a good mother of her calves and our heart are warming to see her friends become the very protective nannies helping Dok Ngern to take care the baby elephants.
