 - We’re thrilled to inform you all that Mohan, chained and abused for the past 50 years of his life, has finally been rescued by Wildlife SOS and has arrived at his forever home, the Elephant Conservation and Care Center in Mathura.

In perhaps the longest ever rescue operation lasting over 20 hours at the Pratapgarh district, members of the forest department, an NGO Widllife SOS and the Uttar Pradesh police managed to free the elephant from his mahout – ironically named “Ghulam” or slave.

It took 50 police officers to control the crowd – among them those who tried their best to stop the rescue – and help forest officials to finally free the elephant. The police have also arrested the mahout. He faces up to seven years in jail.
