Elephant freed, cried after 50 years of cruelty

For those who haven’t read or heard about Raju’s story, the pathetic story of an elephant, which from the very beginning of its life was doomed to suffer after being poached and subjected to cruel treatment by about 27 different owners who made the gentle animal’s world in India nothing less than a torture chamber, I am sharing with you this moving video for you to see and feel the wickedness of man. It took 50 years for Raju to get freed and when he tasted freedom the ill-fated animal simply broke down.

  1. The worst predator is man. 27 owners, not one of them with a scrap of kindness. I sure hope Raju gets to live on for much longer with dignity and joy

Let me know what you think
