Elephants are known to be large friendly creatures that most of us have grown to adore, but in places, these majestic creatures are still treated very inhumanely by their masters who consider wild animals their personal property to do with them as they please. This is a sad story of Raju, a majestic wild elephant in India who was illegally captured by his owner and badly abused by the barbaric captive. Miraculously a team of caring animal rights activists intervened to rescue the poor creature from the hands of his cruel master who was slowing killing the elephant. The reaction they got from Raju when they unchained him for the first time was truly heart-wrenching.
