Animals do not be worthy of the treatment that lots of people give them, so knowing about the rescue of this elephant loads our hearts with happiness and joy. His name is Raju and after living for more than 50 years in the most awful conditions he is breathing freely once again, thanks to a foundation that decided to do something to rescue him.
The elephant can not include his tears and cried when he saw his rescuers.
The pachyderm was caught by poachers when it was small and has since passed through various owners through illegal sale.
Unfortunately, none of these individuals resigned themselves to looking after him correctly, however included in the pain of living in captivity, the poor elephant was subjected to the most painful conditions.
The little animal was known for its nobility among the locals.
This animal experienced the exact same disaster that countless exploited elephants live in the world. But its agony culminated when the London-based company Wild animals SOS won the legal suit to save it from the hands of its last owner. The most emotional thing about this tale was the truth that throughout his rescue Raju began to weep.
The elephant remained in extremely bad condition with shackles on its legs that harm it, but it was also quite slim.
The animal made it through thanks to the kindness of some travelers that fed it however when that did not happen it was required to eat what it found; even if that was as poisonous as plastic cans. After going through a lot work, it appeared that he was enjoyed see his rescuers.
After a year of lawful struggle and with the authorization ready, the volunteers of the company executed the rescue operation in the early hours of the early morning. Everything was coldly calculated for the operation to be effective, but no one guessed what the elephant’s reaction would be.
His freedom was near.
Pooja Binepal, who participated in the operation, said that she had never ever seen an elephant cry before.
“The group was surprised to see how tears kept streaming down Raju’s face throughout his rescue. We knew in our hearts that he realized that he was being launched, “Binepal claimed.
For rescuers, this was the first time they had witnessed such a scene. The procedure took longer than expected because of the thorn-like chains with which the animal was held, but while they worked Raju would not stop weeping. That situation moved them all and motivated them to get him out of that terrible place as soon as possible.
While this was taking place, the owner of the elephant threatened and had a hard time to prevent the rescue.
This little animal lastly had the liberation it deserved for years, it must never have left its mom’s side, and now it can live in a better place.
The elephant was transferred to the Elephant Conservation Center in Mathura. He reached the scene at midnight, after a trip in the company of the vets and workers that saved him. At the site, seven more elephants were waiting for him and found a better life because center.
Currently this friend will no longer have to endure hunger, much less the mistreatment and humiliation that the people who looked after him committed for years. Raju will certainly be protected by trained workers and will have enough area to walk easily and enjoy a suitable diet.
Although all animals should live in their habitats, the wrong they did to this elephant can no more be made good and leaving it alone in a wild environment could be the like condemning it. Raju does not have the same abilities as his family members and would certainly be simple prey for anyone, but after his pain and tears just a much better life awaits him in the shelter.
Man has hurt so many animals that efforts to save them are little compared to all the need that exists, however scenes such as this rescue inspire us to proceed defending them.
