For several years, elephant bull Zar Win-Win helped his owner, or ‘oozie’, pull teak logs through Myanmar’s rugged jungles during logging season. Now in his fifties, he lives out his retirement occasionally helping his oozie transport small goods. One morning following heavy rainfall in the jungle, Zar Win-Win lost his footing and slipped down an incredibly steep and muddy hill. His owner watched on concerned as Zar Win-Win struggled to right himself and escape the slippery ditch.
Fortunately, an onlooker observed the accident and sought out SPANA’s help. When they arrived, the vet team – with the help of a kind oozie and another strong working elephant – pulled Zar Win-Win up to safety. Although shaken, the elephant stood calmly while he was treated with a course of anti-inflammatories and painkillers. The vets advised that Zar Win-Win should receive plenty of rest and showed the oozie how to gently clean his superficial wounds.
