Background history: Jasmine’s life was an oppressive, monotonous and exhausting routine of navigating through the crowded streets of Delhi as a begging elephant, with bare minimum sustenance and absolutely no breaks. When not walking around, she would be tied to a littered, open field. Irrespective of weather conditions or hygiene she would stay tethered, with little to no movement, worsening the condition of her joints and foot pads. Jasmine’s rescue closed the curtain on the captive elephants in the national capital and she was successfully rehabilitated to the Wildlife SOS Elephant Rehabilitation Centre.
