Raju, the elephant, free after 50 years of abuse

INDIA (WFLX) - A 50-year old elephant, Raju, spent five decades shackled and abused in India.

More than a year ago, a team from World SOS started investigating. A couple of weeks ago, they were able to free the elephant who then appeared to cry.

Experts say it will still take Raju years to learn to accept the kindness of human beings. He's still half the weight he should be.
