Six baby elephants have been rescued from mud pool in Nakhon Ratchasima following two days of delicate efforts from officials.

 

The Department of National Parks Wildlife and Plants Conservation reports that they found the baby elephants on Wednesday while forest officers were patrolling in the forest in Sengsang, Nakhon Ratchasima, northeast of Thailand.

 

During the afternoon they stumbled on the six baby elephants stuck in a mud pool. Traces of larger elephants were found nearby. Officers tried to help the baby elephants out of the mud but failed as the darkness prevented them from continuing until yesterday morning.

"Then, yesterday officers came back at sunrise. At about midday they were able to successfully haul the baby elephants up from the mud pool and send them back to their herd."

 

😉  Thai rangers seem to be the most heroic law enforcement branch in Thailand.  What a nice story

apon entering, an elephant cannot accend the mud bank to exit as it is too slippery and steep.

I have seen this with larger elephants several times and usually heavy machinery may be used such as an excavator or a front end loader.

Yeah, if we all were treated in a similar way both Thailand and the ROW would have been a better place ...
