Is Sambo the elephant coming out of retirement to return once more to Wat Phnom Penh?

Fortunately it seems the gov't officials are making the right decision this time. Its very sad though that the owner won't accept EARS offer for Sambo to be retired in a sanctuary with other elephants. Hope he still comes around on that point.
