Elephant Conflict Caught on Film

This interesting bit of elephant interaction was observed by volunteers in Dec. After some pretty standard and harmless ruff play between Pee Mai and Song Kran, Pee Mai's mother, Mana, charges little Song Kran.

Song Kran was not hurt and as you can see does not appear very phased by the event. What you cant see is, Song Kran's mother Boon Jan is tethered just out of view of the camera. Volunteers observed that she didn't seem concerned at all by the event.
