This is a pic fresh from the camera. I’ve been in Yunnan and down to Xishuangbana- an area that contains a large reserve of tropical forests that are close to Laos. There are a number of species (tigers, elephants) that migrate between the two countries.
It’s also one of the transit route for drugs coming out of the golden triangle. So, this elephant picture is actually from a recovery center in Xishuangbanna for elephants (closed off to the public). This elephant is part of a small group that drug-smugglers were using to move drugs across the border.
