A hundred or so elephants are having to trudge some 150 kilometres back to their natural habitat now that there are no tourists to watch them perform and the mahouts have run out of money to feed them.

Mahouts in Chiang Mai said the elephants are being led to Mae Chaem district, where local communities can help look after them, now that most elephant shows in the province have been temporarily closed due to the pandemic.
