Comments / pictures

Right tearing ear.

He grew up on the Thai side of the border around Chiang Mai but crossed regularly, during times of low work or crack down on his illegal job he was let free into the forest but always re-caught - after the injury his owners decided he may not be able to fend for himself in the rapidly dissappearing Burmese jungle and so sought easy employment for him.

On lease at elephant nature park 2003-2004.
