2016-03-05: A few weeks ago we heard reports that Kiew Ta had been involved in a disastrous accident while being transported from one camp to another in the northeast of Thailand. She was being transported during the night on the back of a vehicle that had not been properly equipped to carry an elephant safety. The truck was travelling to fast when approaching an intersection with a red light, it had to break suddenly causing her to lose footing and crash into the body of the truck. She died the following day after sustaining severe injuries caused by this.
