Elephant Of The Week : Tilly

Born around 1980, Tilly was rescued from a trekking camp in early March 2011, She has had about 15 owners before finally finding a forever home at Elephant Nature Park.  She was bought from a nearby trekking camp and had only been there a few months when we were able to rescue her. Tilly has a dislocated hip. How she got this injury is not known. With Tilly’s handicap, she was probably not suitable for giving rides. It’s most likely that she was put in a forced breeding program so that she could produce babies who would be taken from her to be used in street begging or elephant show.  Thankfully Tilly came to the park before that could happen.  Here in the Park, she is best friends with Kham Puan and Thai Koon.
