Former streetbegging elephant. Seized in Surin because it was in very bad shape.

2013-09-30: Naetiwin Amorsin, the owner of a four-year-old female elephant, Phang Taengmo, submitted a complaint with Surapong Kongchantuk, a member of the Lawyer's Council of Thailand’s human rights committee, on Monday. The lawyer said he would act on the petition unless the state moved quickly to return the elephant.
