Comments / pictures

2001: While working in the logging industry, she was injured when she stepped on a UXO (Un-Exploded Ordinance) that was left behind by the Indochina War. She suffered the loss of part of her left front foot and is partially handicapped as a result.

2011: A person from Australia and a person from Germany offered to donate funds to Elephant Village in order to rescue an elephant from the logging industry and place it in our care. At the time, we knew of 3 elephants that were available and suitable for rescue. It was decided that the elephant most in need of rescue was Mae Kham Koun.
