Background history: Peanut was rescued along with 3 other elephants from a circus in Maharashtra in 2015. At the young age of 6 years, she was ripped from her herd and subjected to a lifetime of abuse and torture where she was made to perform unnatural tricks for the sake of entertainment. When she arrived at the Wildlife SOS Elephant Hospital campus, she was shy and scared even at the slightest interaction with humans, and that showed us the extent of trauma that she had been through. Patience and love are what brought the young pachyderm into the mischievous and playful elephant that she is today!
