Sullied

“The Royal Thai Police have seized more than a dozen unregistered and illegally registered elephants. … The [registration] system does not require owners’ proof that the animals were born in captivity. The system thus opens the door to the laundering of elephant calves.” (http://www.wwf.org.uk/what_we_do/press_centre/index.cfm?uNewsID=6782)

‘Seizing’ elephants seems a sizeable challenge, especially if they’re lathered up.
