The Elephant Raju Cries After Rescued From 50 Years Abuse

This was so hard to watch. I couldn’t believe Raju had these spiked shackles on his legging and digging into his skin for so many years. In fact, he was abused for over 50 years and was recently rescued. The long-term abuse and trauma has broken his spirit. It hurts me seeing this. I am so glad he was rescued and can only hope this rescue will help rehabilitate him in some way. This is why we are in desperate need of animal sanctuaries. To protect abused elephants like Raju.
