Here’s another article about the rescue of Raju, the elephant who was chained for over 50 years and used solely as a “beggar’s prop.”
This article gives a little more detail about the rescue effort. I’d like to keep up with this elephant. I hope the press keeps up with him too so we all can learn about his recovery and rehabilitation — hopefully now he’ll get to see that all humans aren’t monsters…
And here’s a video showing Raju getting treatment for the wounds on his legs, which are infected from the spikes on the chains gouging into his flesh. But he is on the mend now and hopefully he will go on to live a happy, healthy life!
