Not confirmed claim on Pawsweb: August 12, 1999: Cambodian Farmer Kills Elephant, Sells Calf - A Cambodian farmer was arrested for killing an
elephant and selling her calf, but was released after he paid about half his profit in fines, according to the Associated Press. The farmer told police that he shot the calf's mother by accident when he opened fire on a herd of elephants that had been grazing on his crops every night. He sold the calf for $460 at a local market. Later they discovered the calf was resold for $1800 to a government official with a private zoo.
