This image shows bullock Gunya under leafy branches at the Sangli sanctuary.

Exhausted and arthritic, Gunya deserved peace and rest in the sunshine with friends.

When Animal Rahat spoke with Gunya’s owner about retiring the old bullock from being forced to haul sugar cane, the man was concerned about his income. The team was determined to retire Gunya and offer him the peace he deserved, so they helped the man obtain a tractor. Problem solved! Now, Gunya is loving life at the Sangli sanctuary: The gentle giant spends his days grazing, socializing with the other animals, getting knee massages from caretakers, and showing his easy-going personality.
