More elephants found dead at Thai waterfall

Elephant Calf Falls Over a Waterfall, Rescue Turns Tragic

Elephant Calf Falls Over a Waterfall, Rescue Turns Tragic

Nakhon Nayok governor Natthapong Sirichana on Tuesday announced the discovery of five more dead elephants in Haew Narok waterfall near the location where six others were found dead on Saturday.

Six elephants have died after falling in a waterfall in Khoa Yai national park, Thailand. "Probably, one of the smaller elephants might have slid and the adult ones were trying to rescue them but instead, were swept away by the water".

Officials were initially called at 3am on Saturday when a group of elephants was blocking a road by the waterfall.

Maneerat said the death toll of 11 is the highest number of elephants to die in a single incident in Khao Yai, where the elephant population is estimated to be about 300.

In 1992, a herd of eight elephants died after they slipped and fell over a waterfall while trying to cross a river.

Despite being hailed a hero by local authorities, Nicole said she still feels "like I've done something wrong". "It's devastating. The teen reportedly told his mother that the journal entries were simply creative writing, and not an actual plot.

A drone has since located another five dead elephants near Haew Narok, the park's tallest waterfall, the Associated Press reported.

Edwin Wiek, founder of Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand, said any elephants left in the herd would have difficulty surviving as the animals rely on each other for protection and finding food.

Rangers managed to lead the two surviving elephants, who were trying to reach the calf, from the ravine and said they will monitor their condition throughout the week.

He said officials were only able to spot the additional bodies of elephants after the sky had cleared up on Monday.

They discovered a baby elephant, which drowned in the first tier of the waterfall as two male elephants stood on the edge of the cliff above. Like other Asian elephants, which are classified as "endangered" by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), wild elephants in Thailand are threatened by habitat loss and poaching.
