Our boy Hope still in the Musth season. He is more relax and take long time to swim during the hot hours. Today he walk to Lek and when he saw the tamarind his favorite snack in her hand he want to show that he not danger, by starting to lay down and search trunk to ask for food. He is such a gentle and handsome boy.
With the help and kind support from Jody Thomas (USA) and Leonor Gonzo (Australia) Hope won his freedom to stay with us. These kind volunteers became Hope’s foster parents after helping to buy his freedom.After the untimely death of Ging Mai, Hope stopped drinking and taking food. He was totally devastated and kept calling out for his young friend. He used his trunk to smell and looked all over the area for his little brother. Finally we had to move him to another place. It was just too sad to see this devastated boy stay in this land surrounded by painful memories and sadness.
