Chana (ชนา)

Chana is a young female elephant who was rescued to Elephant Nature Park at the age of 8 and had been suffering from a broken rear left leg for about 6 – 7 months.

Apparently she had been playing on a termite mound and slipped, catching her rear left leg between 2 trees. Struggling and panicking, it is believed Chana broke her leg in the chaos of trying to free herself. After a short while at a hospital, she returned home to stay with the owner. She still showed pain to walk. At the house of Chana’s owner, there was not much space and they also had to work at their farm, having no time for the injured young girl. Chana was chained most of the time. Finally they contacted Lek at Save Elephant Foundation to help take Chana.
