Wonderful story. What a horror we humans make of life for so many creatures including other humans. I hope he has many glorious years of freedom left. I'm so sorry he had to endure so much for so long.

Absolutely disgusting how mankind can be so evil. What was done to Raju is shameful & I just can not understand how someone is willing to make money by causing pain to an animal. Karma will deal with all of Raju's previous owners.
A big thank you to all involved in this miraculous rescue and those that will help Raju rehabilitate. Raju deserves a long, happy, and free life.
Thank you Christeen for posting this wonderful story.

THE RESCUE IS WONDERFUL! I do hope that his former Mahout is really reformed, Keep an eye on him. Ghandi would cry at how little his country has grown in compassion to animals.

I am amazed this elephant lasted so long thru such an ordeal omg what endurance to just want to live no wonder the tears and they say we need not think animals so dam important nor try to fight for their rights and welfare go to hell these stories prove and show just how dam amazing animals are that man has to do this treatment to an animal this long who is the one who needed to be in chains! One day mankind who is not kind will be off far worse if actions continue I fight and rally support and advocate for all animals to be free and free from abuse from man
