My group of travelers had visited the Kong Plu Waterfall on Koh Chang and were heading home and we drove past the Baan Chang Elephant park after it had closed for the day. The area was deserted except for their young elephant, who was tethered all alone in a small enclosure. There was no one around and the baby elephant was pacing and swaying as much as his tether would allow...clearly in distress. I saw no food or water. Elephants are social, family-group animals and this treatment seems cruel and NOT what a place that calls itself a sanctuary should do. I would never recommend any animal lover visit there...I hope there is an investigation of their activities with all their elephants.
