Background history: For 50 years, Jai languished on the unforgiving streets of crowded cities and was abused as a begging elephant. Being a robust bull elephant, his owners thought the best way to control him is to tightly restrain him with illegal spiked chains that dug through his flesh causing suppurating wounds. The timely intervention of the Rajasthan Forest Department and Wildlife SOS rescued him from a lifetime of misery and Jai was successfully rehabilitated to the Wildlife SOS Treatment Unit for intensive care. | READ MORE ABOUT JAI
