Its been five years since an elephant, fondly known as Raju, was rescued after being held captive. Raju celebrated five years of his freedom with a special cake.
An elephant, fondly known as Raju, celebrated five years of his freedom in a ceremony that was organised for him. Raju was held captive before being rescued by an NGO as he spent the first five decades of his life seeking alms for his owner on the streets of Uttar Pradesh. He was kept in custody illegally until he was rescued by the NGO Wildlife SOS in 2014.
To celebrate Raju's freedom, the team at Elephant Conservation & Care Centre in Mathura got a cake made for him filled with his favourite fruits including mango and watermelon. As per reports, Raju was elated with the surprise and finished the cake within minutes.
