According to friends at Elephant Nature Park the Thai authorities are planning a raid tomorrow to confiscate elephants and arrest the founder Lek. The raid is thought the be a backlash for ENP and another wildlife refuge Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand for speaking out on the recent elephant killings at Kaengkrachan National Park and Kuiburi National Park, and the involvement of officials, politicians and wealthy businessmen.

They have already brutally removed 103 animals from WFFT for supposedly not having "correct paperwork".

Having volunteered at ENP and met Lek personally and also had dozens of friends visit (some of whom are VF members) I can personally vouch for the fact that Lek only has the interests of the animals at heart and this is an exceptional place doing incredible work with some of Thailands most horrifically abused elephants.

Please please please spread the word, sign the petition and email Thai authorities to protest this outrage. It breaks my heart to think that these poor creatures who have finally found peace from their lifetime of abuse could be again ripped away from their sanctuary and placed back into a life of misery and servitude.

The latest news from friends at the park is that the officials came but didn't take any eles as Lek was there with media and supporters . But they plan on returning in two weeks. Apparently they are trying every avenue possible to find some reason to arrest Lek.

Please continue to spread the word!
