The holidays are a great time to sit down and reflect on the wonderful times and experiences of the previous year. We show gratitude to the loved ones who stood by us through it all and set our intentions for what’s to come in the new year. Once all the hustle and bustle of preparation is done, the holidays are the perfect time to soak it all in and finally get a chance to relax. For many of us, this is an annual practice, but for Mohan the elephant, this will be his very first happy Christmas.
Mohan was rescued by Wildlife SOS from a long and horrific life as a working elephant. At the age of 55, Mohan had spent the duration of his life working as a tourism prop. He spent months on end walking the hard concrete city streets, in chains, eating nothing but street scraps and plastic. As you can imagine, this was no life at all for an elephant.
Thankfully, this life is becoming a distant memory for Mohan because of the incredible people at Wildlife SOS. Not only did they help facilitate his rescue, but they also endured a lengthy and grueling legal battle to ensure that Mohan would never have to return to the cruel person who formerly owned him.
This year, Mohan has a lot to be happy about and if this video is any indication, we’d say he is absolutely glowing!
