For 50 years, the elephant Raju was imprisoned on the area of Uttar Pradesh in India. Every day he was imprisoned with thick chains. His “owner” bound him, and forced to beg for alms from the tourists by drawing its already fragile trunk.
One day, Uttar Pradesh, in India Department informed the Forest in North London-based on the charity about the fate of Raju. When they discovered how this poor elephant is treated, they immediately flew to India to save him.
20 forest officers and six police officers joined 10 vets and experts. Raju was evacuated by the army of people who wanted to save him.
They found him chained.
The rescue team started their action at night to avoid some problems with the “owners” and other people.
