North London-based charity Wildlife SOS stepped in to save Raju from dying in his bonds after learning of his plight in India.
So, a few days ago, a 10-strong team of vets and wildlife experts from the charity were joined by 20 forestry department officers and six policemen to seize Raju from his suffering in the Uttar Pradesh.
Breaks my heart to see such suffering and can't help but wonder that for all that are saved, how many needlessly suffer until the end? Why is a human life so special yet an animal’s taken so easily? On the one hand the humans who saved Raju are wonderful examples of our species, but on the other the people who kept him deserve to rot.
Share his amazing rescue with others. If you see animal abuse, say something. Don’t let innocent creatures suffer.
