In October, BEES brought her to live at its sanctuary with other rescued elephants in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
“It appears Fluffy may never have been allowed to roam freely and forage on her own,” Emily McWilliam, cofounder of BEES, wrote in a blog post shortly after Fluffy’s rescue. “In the camps Fluffy’s owners were only able to feed her grass and bananas. When she stepped out of her enclosure to explore for the first time she seemed confused. She could smell the grass but hesitated to grab it and break it off to eat.”
