Comments / pictures

2020-08-31: Phu Thep unfortunately died of liver and kidney failure in the hospital last night. Presumably he ate food contaminated with pesticides, which is why he was brought to the elephant hospital of the Elephant Conservation Center in Lampang late on Thursday evening with the help of the Thai Elephant Alliance.
