By 5 pm on Friday, a herd of 14 wild Asian elephants had headed 8.12 km further southwest and continued to wander in Shijie township in the city of Yuxi, Southwest China's Yunnan province, according to the officials in charge of monitoring their migration.

A male elephant, which broke free from the group six days ago, is now about 16 km away in a forest in Kunming. All the elephants are safe and sound.

This herd of 15 wild Asian elephants has trekked 500 kilometers after leaving their original habitat in Xishuangbanna National Nature Reserve in Southwest China's Yunnan province.
