    Wanted: homes for Thai elephants _ applicants must have money and mud holes

    They don't have to be housebroken because these pets won't fit in your home.

    But not just anyone can own an elephant, says Laithongrian Meephan, 47, owner of the Ayutthaya Elephant Farm, 70 kilometers (45 miles) north of Bangkok, who is selling about 20 elephants between the ages of 1 1/2 to 3 years.

    Prices start at 2 million baht (US$48,700; ?40,100) apiece for the beasts, which he promises are well-bred, well-trained, well-behaved and a source of luck.

    But there are conditions attached. Only animal-loving Thai nationals boasting bank accounts of at least 10 million baht (US$243,300; ?200,500), can buy the pachyderms, and potential owners must have sufficient space for the beasts to exercise and mud holes where they can cool off.

    Owners also will be tested on their elephant know-how three months after their purchase to ensure their seriousness, Laithongrian said. Flunk the test and the farm will buy the animal back from you.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
