The challenge of managing domesticated Asian elephants in Nepal – Fanindra R. Kharel

Here’s a link to the 2002 article on captive elephants in Nepal that appeared in Giants on Our Hands: Proceedings of The International Workshop on The Domesticated Asian Elephant, Bangkok, Thailand, 5 to 10 February 2001. It contains lots of useful information about the recent history of captive elephants in Nepal, including the establishment of the Khorsor Breeding Center,  data on the declining wild elephant population, captive elephants held in public and private locations, and births of captive elephants.
