Mother and baby at one week old.

After the stress and trauma from carrying tourists made her too weak to carry them, Me-Bai was freed and sent to Elephant Nature Park in northern Thailand for their Pamper A Pachyderm program.

Though she was nervous and wary of people when she arrived, “she quickly learned that her new caretakers had no intention of abusing her in any way,” the park wrote on their blog.

It was there that the park employees set out to find her mother, Mae Yum. After locating her, they began a three-day journey with Me-Bai to the village where her mother’s owners lived.
