Background history: The unforgiving streets in a small town of Haryana would spot a tall, weak elephant exhausted and dragging herself through the mundane routine that her cruel owner put her through. With little sustenance and no proper medical care rendered to her, Erika would spend her day walking and would be restrained to a corner at night with not even enough space to lie down. When Haryana Forest Department and Police authorities apprehended Erika’s owner for illegally owning her, she was finally free from her abusive life after a series of hindrances, in 2013 and rehabilitated by Wildlife SOS at the Elephant Rehabilitation Centre in Haryana.
