|Tassanes Petkong, an officer with the National Park Department Wildlife and Plant Conservation Center, told the Phuket Gazette, “The mother of the three baby elephants from Sai Yok Elephant Park is also being investigated because they do not have her identification document. So it’s unclear if she was illegally taken from the forest or not.”|
“If the mother elephant is working illegally in the tourist trade, so are the baby elephants,” Mr Tassanes added.
DNA from the three baby elephants will be collected and checked against the DNA of the supposed mother in a laboratory in Bangkok. The results will take about two weeks, said Mr Tassanes.
