Even this giant animal can cry in front of people who have saved him from suffering
The heartbreaking story of this emotional elephant spread online several years ago.
Animal lovers the world over are thankful that after 50 years of captivity, an elephant named Raju has finally been freed from his chains.
The unfortunate elephant was just a calf when he was stolen from the wild and kept as a recreational animal.
Tourists used him to walk on his back.
When the poor animal lacked the strength to do what his owners ordered, he was punished and severely beaten.
The elephant was weakened both physically and mentally.
The years of captivity were a living hell for Raju. Finally Wildlife SOS heard Raju’s story.
Volunteers rushed to his rescue and released him at night because of the unexpected treatment of his insane owner.
When the chains were removed, the poor guy started crying.
Already in the sanctuary, Raju was given a new life where he fully enjoys his life.
