The Sumatran elephant, Erin, was discovered in July 2016 when she was 2 years old, near a housing settlement in Lampung province Susukan Baru area, within the 1,300 sqkm Way Kambas National Park.. Her trunk was severed about 10cm from the distal edge, an injury likely sustained when she fell into a trap.
