Project Description

THONG POON ทองพูน

Name meaning: Mound of gold
Arrival date: January 2018
Arrival age: 23 years
Rescue location: Chonburi
History: Thong Poon was rescued at very short notice. She was working at a trekking camp in Pattaya when her owners contacted WFFT, desperate to sell her at a low price. We discovered she had become very aggressive and had recently attacked a mahout and several tourists. Because of this, her owners could no longer use her for rides.

It is no wonder Thong Poon is an unpredictable elephant. Before being rescued, she was kept with her two front legs hobbled in chains, and she was in direct sunlight with no regular access to drinking water. She also gave birth to two calves, who were cruelly taken away from her.

Characteristics: Thong Poon is very tall and has a confident, curious personality. She prefers her own company and seems much more relaxed in her new environment at WFFT. She enjoys daily enrichments and has her own lake to swim in.
