A 60-year-old blind elephant, rescued from begging on the streets, finds love and care in the arms of rescuers.

Imagine being blindfolded and forced to cross a busy street at gunpoint. This was the reality for Lakhi, a female elephant who had been beaten and chained for her entire life. Fortunately, the court intervened and set her free.

Lakhi was blinded by cruel owners and handlers and forced to beg for money at various temples and towns. Her blindness put her at constant risk of road accidents.

After decades of abuse and neglect, Lakhi was rescued on February 26, 2015. She was gently encouraged to step into a ten-wheeler truck rented for this purpose and begin her journey to a new home.

Despite her many injuries and wounds, including painful swelling in the left temporal region, Lakhi has found love and care in the arms of her rescuers. It is a heartwarming story of redemption and hope.

Her c.ruel masters b.linded Lakhi.

The Wildlife SOS team will bring ophthalmology experts from the UK to explore the possibility of restoring vision in at least one eye. This will significantly improve her welfare.

Her appearance clearly shows that her diet is not nutritious enough.

It can be doubted that she has even tasted food suitable for an elephant.

Walking on asphalt for many years severely affected her feet and toenails.

Lakhi suf.fered from ch.ronic, p.ainful trau.ma and had never received appropriate me.dical treatment. Adding to her p.ain and discomfort were spiked ch.ains held in place around her legs, resulting in punc.ture wo.unds and ab.rasions.

During the 1400km journey, she was cared for with boxes of fresh fruit and buckets of water to keep her hydrated.

She has reached her new home at the SOS Wildlife Care and Conservation Center in Mathura, where she will live her life with dignity and peace.

Lakhi is stretching like a pro!

During the journey to Lakhi’s new home, the group decided to stop for a break and let her get out of the truck for a walk and relax a bit!

Lakhi was weighed by the time she got home.

To check on Lakhi’s health and plan a suitable diet for her, she was weighed by the Wildlife SOS team at the Elephant Care and Conservation Center.
