Nothing makes an animal lover cry more than hearing a story about a helpless animal being abused. This story is no exception. However, you should read the entire story since the happy ending will make you cry.

Raju, a poor elephant from India who had spent over 50 years in captivity entertaining tourists and guests of his owner in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, is the subject of this sorrowful story.

Raju has had a difficult life in the past. He was kidnapped from his mother, passed from one owner to the next, and forced to live in deplorable conditions, with no place to sleep at night and being used as a beggar’s prop during the day.

He was left with spiked shackles around his legs and had to rely on handouts from passing visitors to survive.

SOS-UK, a wildlife charity, could no longer bear the injustice and resolved to save Raju in a daring midnight rescue mission on July 4, Independence Day. The elephant was rescued by ten SOS-UK vets and wildlife experts, as well as 20 forestry officers and six police officers.

He shed joyful tears after realizing that his suffering would soon be over. “Raju’s eyes welled up with tears. Some of it was probably due to the pain, but he also seemed to sense that something was about to change. For the first time, he felt hope,” a rescuer said.

The chains were so securely wrapped that releasing him took 45 minutes. He couldn’t move since he was so tired. Raju took his first steps toward freedom on July 4, finally experiencing what it’s like to be free.

Raju was rescued after 50 years of hardship and abuse and transported to the charity’s Elephant Conservation and Care Centre in Mathura. Raju’s story has a happy ending, and he will live happily ever after. Raju has recovered as well as could be expected following his rescue.
