Victory! Gajraj Has Been Rescued!
Jun 17, 2017 — Finally, Gajraj the elephant has been rescued after more than 50 years of life in cruel chains.
No longer will he be held captive as a temple elephant. Instead, Gajraj will live out the rest of his years in peace at the Wildlife SOS Elephant Care & Conservation Center (ECCC) in Mathura, where he just arrived today!
Thank you, all who spoke out, and thank you to Wildlife SOS, as well as the team of police, Forest Department officers and other officials who coordinated this valiant effort.
May Gajraj enjoy his new home, where he will never be chained again.
