Background story: Life has been unkind to Daisy, to say the least, as she has spent most of her life walking around the narrow and overcrowded streets of Delhi. In a city that barely has enough moving space for humans, the existence of an elephant would often confuse people, and yet nobody would step up to speak for her. When Wildlife SOS rescued Daisy in 2019, our elephant care team and veterinarians were shocked upon witnessing Daisy’s condition. She was completely blind in one eye and losing vision in the other, and her body was a host to the wounds and scars of her brutalizing past.
