Raju the elephant cried on the day he was released from chains

Raju the elephant cried on the day he was released from chains | Mail Online.

Raju the elephant was said to cry tears of joy as he was released from spiked shackles in the Uttar Pradesh area of India after fifty years of torture

The elephant was left bleeding from spiked shackles and living on hand-outs from passing tourists after he was captured by his 'owner'

Every day, the majestic animal was forced to hold out his trunk and beg for coins from passers-by - surviving only on plastic and paper for food

Over the weekend, Raju received emergency medical attention to his wounds as well as a bath and food
