A baby elephant was startled as it fell down a gaping manhole, managing to wedge itself stuck in the hole. It had been out for a walk with its owner in Rayong province. It was taken out to work in the street by a mahout (men who drive the elephants) but probably didn't see where he was going.
Rescuers spent 3 hours trying to pry the baby out of the hole, and eventually managed to free the unharmed elephant after using a bulldozer to widen the hole.
Many of the elephants in the Rayong province are trained to carry tourists through elephant treks through the jungle.
Mahouts also use elephants to beg on the streets of many large Thai cities and baby elephants, with their cute eyes and hairy heads, are among the most sought after.
Baby elephants are often taught tricks to appeal to tourists and, although it is illegal in many cities, work the streets with their owners from early in the morning to late at night.
Mahouts control the elephants using a small number of commands and a sharp hook, known as an angkus.
Last month a 14-year-old female elephant was electrocuted in Rayong when she accidentally brushed against a naked electrical cable.
