Baby elephant Dok Geaw lost his mother at just 4 months old after she passed away from a prolapsed uterus. She was a “working elephant” used for logging, and was kept working even after she gave birth — and denied medical treatment until it was too late.
Despite Dok Geaw’s tragic loss, life is going to get much better for this orphan. When Elephant Nature Park in Thailand took him in, his new herd gave him a warm welcome, running over en masse to say hello.
Best of luck in your new home, Dok Geaw!
