A man in Dak Lak Province in the Central Highlands handed an elephant over to an animal rescue center and was given VND700 million ($29,852) as support money.


Y Khun (which means "lucky") is a 40-year-old elephant that's been raised by Dang Van Long's family in Dak Lak's Lak District for tourism purposes for years, Tran Xuan Phuoc, director of the Dak Lak Elephant Conservation Center, said Tuesday.


Over the past two years under the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, Long brought Y Khun to the jungle to raise him in nature. However, as natural forest coverage gradually decreased and food became more scarce, the family decided to give Y Khun to the conservation center. In return, the family received VND700 million as support.
