The story gets even better than that.
Chailert was able to locate Me-Bai's mother, Mae-Yui, who had also been sent to a trekking service, one that was near the ENP. Chailert convinced Mae-Yui's owner to release her so she, too, could live at the sanctuary. The video above documents the heartwarming mother-daughter reunion that later came to pass.
Chailert says the park's team will work to rehabilitate both mother and daughter so that both can return to the wild together.
