Operation Elephant | Jungle Animal Rescue

[music playing] NARRATOR: After a long, slow
drive through the night– KARTICK: Yes, girl. We’re going to get you out. NARRATOR: –the rescued elephant
arrives at the sanctuary. [elephant whines] KARTICK: Don’t worry. IZZY HIRJI: There we go.
KARTICK: Excellent, excellent. IZZY HIRJI: OK. KARTICK: So there’s axes and
all kinds of hooks and stuff. So let’s start
getting all that off. I think every single
day of her life, she’s been beaten with an ax. Scars all over her forehead. Her forehead is dotted
with scars all over. You can see all the wounds
and the scars around. IZZY HIRJI: Yeah.
KARTICK: Just look at that. IZZY HIRJI: Yeah.
My goodness. KARTICK: She’ll never have
pain from these things again. NARRATOR: Having
spent years abused and alone, this elephant also
carries psychological scars. DR. HEZY ANHOLT: I
just want to help her. Wild elephants live in these
very tight social family groups where socialization and
communication are really important to their daily life. Whereas a captive elephant
lives in total isolation. They’re deprived of contact
with other elephants. These elephants
have really serious psychological conditions
that are linked to captivity. NARRATOR: The team
hopes that introducing her to other elephants will
heal some of those scars. But first, she
should be initiated into the Wildlife SOS family. KARTICK: What we’re
going to be doing now is the welcoming ceremony
and the naming ceremony. When a new elephant
is rescued, we always welcome her with prayers,
asking for God’s blessings to support her and have a safe,
secure, and a pain-free future. We pray to Lord Ganesh,
who is elephant god. Sandy is going to seek the
blessings of Lord Ganesh. IZZY HIRJI: Beautiful. KARTICK: And there you go. Good girl. Take the bell off. MAN: OK. IZZY HIRJI: You’re almost free. KARTICK: That’s it. IZZY HIRJI: There we go. KARTICK: Her bell’s off. IZZY HIRJI: Wishing
you a better life. KARTICK: From that moment
onward, she’s taken care of. And we are going to be
calling her Kalpana. IZZY HIRJI: The name
that’s been chosen is Kalpana, which means
imagination or dreams. You know, Kartick, this
was the most special moment of the whole rescue. Now she is someone and
not something anymore. KARTICK: Yes. She’s Kalpana. IZZY HIRJI: That is the key to
the beginning of her new life. It’s shedding everything in the
past behind and starting fresh. Just a little bit of
love, and you can change an animal’s life forever. [music playing] [elephant snorts]
