In the end, with one leg having difficulty, the team was able to remove all the chains that were entangled in them. The moment the shackles fall on the ground, the elephant takes the first step alone without anyone telling it.

It was an enjoyable time for him and everyone around. Who knows how many years those rusty chains have been worn on him?

However, there is no need to worry, as he can finally be called free. Later, he was taken to other elephants in a remote village, hoping that they would breed to preserve his species.

Asian elephants are one of the species that greatly need protection. They are victims of poaching and habitat loss, endangering their lives and entire populations around the world. Besides, there is only a rough estimate of 30,000 to 50,000 Asian elephants globally, which is only a fraction of other species.

Hopefully, these majestic creatures will slowly save themselves from extinction by multiplying them.
