Comments / pictures

The DNA results for the baby elephant seized from the Phu Thai Souvenir Market in Chalong proved that it was the offspring of a legally registered mother at a camp in Saiyoke Elephant Park in Kanchanaburi, Col Watcharin Phusit, Superintendent of the Regional Natural Resources and Environment Crime Suppression Division [NREC] confirmed

Somchok who was seized in February earlier this year has been proven that he is from Sai Yoke, Kanchanaburi Province and is the baby of Thongdee and Lamduan. The ‘elephant renter’ of Somchok, Kampan Nakdee will now once again be able to show Somchok at the Phu Thai Review Souvenir Market.
