Thailand

Due to rapid loss of habitat wild elephants in Thailand can occasionally be seen wandering onto roads (fig.). This often happens in or near National Parks, as here in Khao Yai National Park (fig.).

 

When spotted or reported, park officials will goad these elephants back into the forest. See also List of Thai Animal Names.
