Elephant bones linked to wildlife trafficking

A snip :

In an expanded investigation into the assimilation of wild elephants in the Western forest complex, the team was tipped off that wildlife poachers had tranquilised wild elephants in Kaeng Krachan National Park in nearby Petchaburi province and transported them on vehicles to Moo Baan Chang, waiting to merge them with captive populations. However, some of the captured elephants died from an overdose of tranquilising agents and were buried.

Lets hope Thailand gets serious about all these animal attraction places, like they did with the Tiger Temple and just close them all.

Seems the owner of this place is linked to the Hua Hin zoo as well, and from another news article I read that staff of this zoo has been arrested twice before (2014 and 2016) for possesion of illegal wild animals for which the zoo had fake licenses. But from what I understand the zoo is still operating.
