Where is the PenoGuard™ when you need one?

A BABY elephant has been rescued after it ended up wedged in a street manhole when it fell into a drainage ditch in eastern Thailand.

PenoGuard should have been used hereThe young elephant looked on pleadingly with its front legs positioned at the edge of the roughly metre-square hole while rescuers worked for three hours to free it.

Eventually a bulldozer was employed to widen the hole and allow the elephant to escape.

The young pachyderm emerged physically unharmed.

The elephant had fallen into the hole after its trainer had taken it out to work on the street in Rayong province.

Elephants are a common sight in many Thai towns and cities either performing heavy manual work or being used as a prop by beggars and buskers to solicit money from passers-by.

Baby elephants are especially favoured and usually perform a repertoire of tricks.

Concerns over cruelty have led to the banning of elephant displays in many areas of Thailand.

However this has done little to curb the practice with many elephant owners and trainers, known as mahouts, working their animals for long hours every day.

“Penoguard is lightweight and easy to use with engineered safety. When access is required the quick and easy fold down frames are raised, eliminating the gravitational risk and when closed the system can be locked off to prevent any unauthorised access. We recommend Penoguards fit for purpose in this application and commend C&V Engineering for providing the solution to our problem”.
