While the lives of elephants are often cut short by poachers and hunters, they rarely are the victims of a common killer of humans: cancer. This is surprising, since elephants have 100 times more cells – all with the potential to mutate and become cancerous – than humans do. Elephants, if they’re lucky, have a life span of 50 to 70 years, yet their cancer mortality rate is less than 5 percent. For humans, it’s up to 25 percent.

A Sri Lankan elephant has been in shackles for 67 years, but an Indian minister has come to his rescue. Union Minister for Women and Child Development Maneka Gandhi, who is also a renowned animal rights activist, wrote to Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena on Friday (September 14) requesting him to end the "plight" of Bandula, the elephant who was born in 1949 and has been chained in Dehiwala Zoo since 1951.

While giving the example of India, Maneka Gandhi urged Sirisena that all the seven elephants in that zoo be released and transferred to a safari park.
