I am so scared for Raju. His filthy owner is trying to get him back. He poached this elephant he does not own him. All you people destroying your own animals for ransom are really stupid. Elephants are a gift from god just like all things on earth. To torture a living beautiful calf to death because of crops is vile. They were here first. The government won't pay anything. Too much world greed is killing our souls. Save these animals. All animals. So sad to think there will be no more elephants in 25 years. Thanks to humans and their stupidity. We were given a incredible gift our Planet. You be the one to tell the creator why you destroyed and murdered his precious gifts.
