Pang is a prefix name, used in Thailand for female elephants.

2013-10-26: Kathu district chief officer Veera Kerdsirimongkol visited a coconut farm yesterday afternoon (October 25) in Baan Bangthong, Kathu, following a complaint. Here Mr Veera found a one-year-old baby elephant, named Sukjai, chained to a tree. At the scene was Prasop Jerkaew, 37, who is understood to have brought the elephant to Phuket from Phang Nga two days ago, and did not report it to authorities. The elephant is believed to have been smuggled to Phuket without any permit. Mr Prasop and baby Sukjai were taken to the Thungthong police station. If the authorities can prove that Mr Prasop took the elephant to Phuket illegally, he will face prosecution.
