History: Mae Khoun Song is from Thongmixay. She worked in the logging industry in Thongmixay and she had many mahouts before coming here. When the logging industry stopped, she worked in a tourist camp in Luang Prabang for a few months. After this time in the tourist industry, her owner brought her back to Thongmixay were she was alone in the forest for about two years. The last owner wanted a better life for her, and decided to sell her to the ECC. She arrived to the ECC in very good body conditions, but she was a bit overwhelmed having all the new elephants around and the ECC elephants were a bit intimidated with her size. The first elephant that was interested in approaching her was Mae Boun Nam. A few weeks later, she was feeling comfortable being surrounded by other elephants.
