Video captured the elephant chewing on palm fronds and green bananas while doctors stood around assessing his progress.

But his condition slowly deteriorated and he eventually collapsed, writhing in pain.

Medics were filmed giving him painkillers and inserting drips into his ear to give him antibiotics and food, but they could not save him.

The elephant eventually died on March 31, two days after he was found.

Scans and tests have since shown at least two metal objects lodged in his body, local station INN News reports, one of which ruptured his large intestine.

He was also suffering from parasitic worms which had infected his liver and stomach, causing him to be emaciated.

The elephant was found around half a mile outside a national park where the animals are allowed to roam freely.

India arrests man over shocking death of elephant

  India arrests man over shocking death of elephant Indian police have arrested a plantation worker and are hunting two others after a pregnant elephant died after eating fruit laced with explosives, officials said Saturday, in a case that shocked the country. DISTRESSING CONTENT - WARNING: The following story may be distressing to some readers.

Police believe the young male - driven by hunger - wandered out of the park and into a jackfruit farm, where he was shot.  

National Park director Pichai Watcharapongpaibul said: 'The elephant was seriously exhausted and could not stand up or move so he was treated at the scene and monitored closely. 

'Unfortunately he suddenly became weaker and died. 

'We don't know how long the bullets had been inside the elephant's body or what type of gun they came from as an autopsy must be performed.'

He said National Park staff will start an investigation to find the hunter who shot the elephant, which is believed to have been in retribution for damaging farm land.

He added: 'Initially, we will ask the locals living nearby whether they have seen this elephant before or if anybody was angered by the elephants.'

Hunting wild elephants has been illegal in Thailand since 1992. 

Anyone caught hunting or killing the animals can be fined up to £1,000 or jailed for four years.

There are thought to be 320 Asian elephants living wild in the park, which covers 374 square miles and stretches across the border into neighbouring Myanmar.
