Typical Thai Elephant handler with axe in hand, why don't they invite Lek Challart the Elephant whisperer to teach them how to handle Elephants.

some of the reviews:

Disgusting. Animal abuse and neglect at its finest. Just what Thailand needs, another animal torture venue. This breaks my heart. Someone please shut this place down asap.

I really hope you have plans to put some of the birds in bigger cages also the monkeys. Otters like to swim one had a small bowl of water the other had nothing. The zoo has potential but the animals need to come first.

If I could give this place zero stars I would! Awful way to treat these beautiful animals! Animal abuse, dont support it by going here please!!

Why aren't you thinking about the animals and treating them better? I can't believe you have people riding baby elephants. Disgusting!

Simply horrible, you should be ashamed of yourselves

Appalling practices. Animal abuse centre basically.

But of course the Thai comments are all good.

I was there at the weekend and agree with all of the above. Totally disgusting place. Should be shut down until they learn how to look after the animals properly.:cuss:

Or even better, go to Kuiburi National Park and see them in the wild!

Been there, it is a really nice day out however there is always the possibility of not seeing a single animal. Now if you really wanna see Elephants go to Chobe National Park on the banks of the Zambezi River in Botswana, magnificent. I was lucky enough to work in Bots for 4 years, went to Chobe plenty of times, saw 62 elephants at once lined up drinking at the river edge, crocs galore waiting to snap a young one.
Bit of a drive from HH though.

Special teams seize elephants, check forest land
A NEW taskforce set up by the National Parks Department filed a complaint with police yesterday after confiscating two young elephants from a zoo in Hua Hin in Prachuap Khiri Khan after it found they did not have correct livestock identification forms.

Meanwhile, another team, known as the 'White Shark', launched an investigation into encroachment on a vast area of mangroves in Phuket.

The 'King of the Tigers' taskforce led by Chaiwat Limlikit-aksorn checked the zoo in Hua Hin's Tambon Hin Lek Fai. They found 11 elephants but two did not have correct ID forms.

One, called Plai Bun, was four years old, but had a document that said it was 10 years old. The form also said the elephant had five front nails and four back nails but the elephant had only four nails on both front and back legs. It also did not have a hole on its ear lobe, as described in the ID form.

The officials also seized Plai Moss, 17, which has ivory tusks - while its ID form said it had no tusks.

The officials also suspected that the zoo did not have complete and necessary documents to possess other wild animals such as tigers and bears. They said it had only a licence to operate the zoo but not documents to prove that the state had been notified about its possession of wildlife.

Hua Hin Zoo

Post by Pagey » Fri Nov 04, 2016 9:25 am

I know there was a long topic on this when the posters first appeared round town but a search can't reveal it.

Has anyone been ? Worth a trip for a 3 y.o. ?

I know it's located passed Terry's Fishing Lodge, is it a well made road or flooded and potholed?

TIA. :cheers:

As posted just before yours, it seems to have been raided and closed.

I knew they had taken away a lot of the animals but I saw an advert for it recently, at least I presumed it was that zoo and they had a promotion price only 30 and 60 baht presumably to reflect the lack of stock. Just thought somewhere to go to occupy the little one after kindergarten today.
