Remember earlier this year when Animal Rahat celebrated Sunder the elephant’s fifth year of freedom from captivity?

Well, now you can see some very dear and recent photos of Sunder, who is thriving in the expansive Bannerghatta Biological Park.

Rescued elephant Sunder strolls through a spacious elephant musth corral at the Bannerghatta Biological Park.

After years of enduring neglect, abuse, and isolation, it’s wonderful to see him moving about freely and getting the care that he needs and deserves—all in the company of friends!
