Elephant Of The Week : Sook Jai

Sook Jai worked very hard in all of her life from street begging to tourist trekking elephant. At 73 years old, she is being completely blind and mostly deaf .  She was in very poor condition with a lot of wounds on her head and her body as each time she was treated with violence. On January 24, Elephant Nature Park’s rescue team went to a pick her up from a location near Kanchanaburi province, west Thailand. On the ride, she looked very hungry but would not eat anything as the suspense was too much. After 20 hours of journey, she arrived the park and took her first step to the sanctuary. Sook Jai was very easy to get off of the truck to her new home.

On a first couple of days, when she get out of her enclosure she went directly to the river, but now she is taking her time around the property to explore! We hope Sook Jai will be recovering from her past and coming back to health soon.
