This is a touching moment for this blind elephant as she is welcomed into her new herd for the first time.
The heartwarming images show how the rescued elephant Ploy Thong emits low vibrations to alert the other elephants to her presence.
It wasn’t long before the rest of the group took notice, inspecting the newcomer and lovingly touching her with her trunk.
Ploy Thong, who had been in pain for years before being rescued by the Save Elephant Foundation, would have appreciated the moment captured in Thailand’s Elephant Nature Park.
This blind elephant will never forget the joy she felt when she was welcomed into her new herd for the first time.
Ploy Thong, who is blind in both eyes, is thought to be around 30 years old. Previously, he carried tourists on his back for 16 years in Thailand’s Pattaya region, only using his trunk to smell his routes while people used it for a walk.
Ploy Thong had previously worked in the circus. Employees of the Save Elephant Foundation noticed Ploy Thong’s difficulties while releasing another elephant, Bua Keaw, and negotiated a path to freedom with his owner.
Ploy Thong, the rescued elephant, can be seen in the video sending out low vibrations, alerting the other elephants to her presence.
It wasn’t long before the rest of the group took notice and went over to inspect the newcomer, affectionately touching her with their trunks.
On February 3, she was taken to the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai, where she had her incredible first interaction with her new herd.
“Ploy Thong is another elephant that we wanted to save,” said Elephant Nature Park staff.
I transport tourists every day despite the fact that both eyes are blind. They saddled her early every day and carried riders until sunset.
Ploy Thong would have been relieved to have captured the moment at Elephant Nature Park in Thailand.
She suffered years of discomfort before being rescued by the staff at the Save Elephant Foundation
Ploy Thong the elephant, who is blind in both eyes, is thought to be around 30 years old.
“While the tourist was on his back, he used his suitcase to smell the trail.”
“We saw her work while on our way to rescue Bua Keaw and began negotiations with the owner to release her.” “Begin her journey to liberty.”
