This poor elephant was forced to go through a ridiculous amount of torture at the hands of her taskmaster for the majority of her life.

She had been both physically and emotionally abused, and the damage was so bad that the elephant was a shadow of her former self.

However, things were about to turn around for this gentle giant, as a rescue team were on their way to free her.
