Mother of Dok Geao was a logging elephant, at his birth the mother had complications and a prolapsed uterus. Obviously, she was still used for work after she gave birth to her baby. Unfortunately, when they finally brought the mother to Thai Elephant Conservation Center’s Elephant Hospital in Lampang, the infection had progressed to a point where she could not recover despite efforts to save her
