Comments / pictures

2013-05-09: A young wild elephant has been caught in a poacher's trap in the Central Highlands province of Dak Lak for three days, despite efforts by relevant authorities to free him. Four experienced mahouts are trying to control the elephant so that rescue workers can remove the traps and treat him, said Thanh, but the process is difficult, as the animal is not domesticated. The elephant, aged five or six, is suffering from serious injuries to his Trunk and Feet caused by the traps; the wounds are also infected with gangrene. Without timely treatment, he will die, said Tran Van Thanh, director of the province's Yok Don National Park.

2013-05-14: The elephant is currently being treated at the Yok Don National Park and is able to eat banana and sugar canes, according to its acting director Tran Van Thanh.

Thanh said the elephant is better, adding doctors have injected it with antibiotics to treat the open wounds on its body. The animal is expected to be anaesthetized for a surgery in the next coming days.
