Project Description

THONG POON

ทองพูน

Name meaning: Mound of gold
Arrival date: 2/01/2018
Arrival age: 23 years
Rescue location: Chonburi
History: Thong Poon was rescued at very short notice from a trekking camp in Pattaya when her owners contacted WFFT, desperate to sell her at a low price. After further investigation we discovered that she had become very aggressive and unpredictable, we learned that she had attacked a mahout and some tourists. This led to her owners being unable to use her for tourist rides, they were desperate to sell her. She has also given birth to two calves which were taken away from her, its no wonder she is an unpredictable elephant. Before being rescued she was kept with her two front legs hobbled in chains, no access to regular drinking water and was kept in direct sunlight every day. Thong Poon has a confident and curious personality, she seems more relaxed and at ease in her new environment.
