Wildlife SOS - India was thrilled to announce this past week that Mohan, chained and abused for the past 50 years of his life, has finally been rescued and is now at their Elephant Conservation and Care Center in Mathura, India.

At the stroke of midnight India time on September 22, Mohan - known as the world's unluckiest elephant - entered the Wildlife SOS Animal Ambulance accompanied by nine team members, including the Wildlife SOS expert paramedics and rescuers, as he made his trip out of captivity and journeyed more than 500 kilometres to the Elephant Conservation and Care Center.

Now Mohan's next journey begins. He will need medical attention, rehabilitation, compassion, and care to fully realize his freedom. He is emaciated from decades of neglect; his digestive system has been severely compromised from parasites; his liver is not functioning well. Mohan has a very long way to go — but the Wildlife SOS - India staff of full-time veterinarians have already mapped out a diet and treatment plan.
