Comments / pictures2019: Female Bak Kham had a stillborn elephant baby,
VN Express – 26.12.2019No calves have survived birth since 1989 in a Central Highlands district where elephants are considered kin and buried among family members. Y Yo Ni, of the M’nong ethnic minority, wades through the mud to reach a cemetery near his home in Bhok Village of Yang Tao Commune, Lak District, Dak Lak Province in the Central Highlands of Vietnam. The 21-year old is visiting Thong Nang, a baby elephant that died earlier this year.

The Mahout is unclear why Thong Nang succumbed at birth, though he ascribes the incident to the mother being too old, heavily exploited by tourism, and confined to a small space. Five years ago, Yo Ni married and moved to Yang Tao Commune. Here, his father-in-law had made a living by providing tourist rides on a 40-year-old elephant named Bak Kham. When Bak Kham grew pregnant, she was transferred deeper into the mountain. Protected by nature, Yo Ni cared for her during the next two years. On the morning of December 1, Bak Kham gave birth to a stillborn infant the family was unable to resuscitate, having blown air into its Trunk for nearly 30 minutes. “My father-in-law couldn’t let go of the corpse. He just held it and wailed. Thong Nang weighed 100 kg,” Yo Ni explains. As the M’nong consider elephants kin, often cohabiting beneath the same roof, Thong Nang was interred next to Yo Ni’s family ancestors.
