ELEPHANTS IN MAETANG SANCTUARY HAVE FALLEN ILL WITH CONSTIPATION

Elephants at an elephant sanctuary in Maetang (แม่แตง) district in Chiang Mai have fallen sick with bloated stomachs, and veterinarians suspect the cause to be from changing of their diet.

Veterinarians at "elephant friend" foundation in Lampang province have evacuated the bowels of 30-year-old Khamdee (คำดี) to help him excrete waste after the elephant had not eaten for days due to constipation. Prior to Khamdee, the foundation had treated 6 elephants all from the same elephant sanctuary in Chiang Mai's Maetang district.

The vets believe the 7 cases resulted from sudden change of food by the elephant home, which switched the elephants' diet from one kind of grass to another. The elephants are currently staying at the foundation in order for the vets to observe their conditions. Their conditions are said to be improving.
