In Thailand, wild elephants have it good: They're legally protected. Tame
elephants, on the other hand, live with a more uncertain fate. Considered
livestock, they have no protection from being maimed or killed by cruel
handlers. Activist Sangduen "Lek" Chailert is changing that with the creation of
the Elephant Nature Park, a sanctuary north of Chiang Mai where rescued
elephants can heal and thrive.
