Sidor is a prefix name, used in Thailand for tuskless male elephants.

During one of the countless thunder storms, lightnings struck really close to him. Panicking, he up-routed the tree he was tied to over night, ran through the forest and fell down a slope.

Thong Bais tragical death initited the founding of Tong Bai foundation.
