Moo’s owner has worked along side him for 16 years while they logged together in Thailand’s forests. Moo, a stunning male elephant in his fifties, has enjoyed retirement at BLES ever since his owner agreed to bring him to the sanctuary in exchange for a monthly salary.
His ears are perfectly symmetrical, his eyes are so sensitive, and his body is bulky and muscular after years of logging work. He has been a bit of a BLES celebrity ever since joining our herd with three other bulls in December 2015.
Our guests are always surprised to see Moo’s incredible balance as he climbs the hillsides on our land. Slowly making his way higher and higher, Moo seems to enjoy a good view of the other elephants while he munches on grasses and vines
Mr Moo, as we have named him, has also been a mentor to our young bull Mee Chok who has loved spending time with this magniﬁcent bull who has so much to teach him.
