The Kanchanaburi Court on Wednesday ordered the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation (DNP) to return 21 elephants to the Sai Yok Elephant Camp. However, as of press time yesterday, the elephants had not been returned to the camp,



The Department took some 50 elephants in early 2012 for inspection in a move to stop people from using the identity papers of dead elephants and pass them off as those of elephants captured from the wild.
