Baby elephant dies from horrific wounds after being caught in hunter’s trap | The Thaiger

A baby elephant has died after a hunter abandoned her, tied up to a fence in a forest in Rayong. The little elephant died after suffering from horrific wounds.

The elephant, only one month old, was found by villagers in Rayong tied up to a fence with a rope cutting deep into her ankle.

Read the story of her discovery and rescue HERE.

When she was found she was barely able to stand and in obvious pain. Villagers named her Baitong. Nothing is known about Baitong’s mother.

She was rescued on December 18, but despite constant expert vet care and an emergency amputation of her infected foot, she succumbed to her injuries.

A vet from the Bureau of Conservation Area Management says that amputating her her foot was necessary to prevent her from dying of infection. The vets report that last Thursday, Baitong was playing with some of her carers when her condition suddenly worsened and she collapsed during the evening. Several vets worked through the night to treat Baitong but she passed away on Friday morning.

Reports are varied with some claiming the fire broke out in the casino while, others say that it was the office building next to the casino which was involved.

The radio centre in Aranyaprathet was contacted by Cambodian officials in Poipet around 10pm Monday night calling for help to fight the fire at the building.

The fire quickly spread from the ground floor to the tenth floor, and although a hundred people were inside the building at the time, reports are saying some six to ten people were injured.

No Thais were injured in the fire.
