Inside India's first elephant hospital where animals saved from cruel circuses and temples receive help for injuries and psychological trauma
These pictures reveal India's first elephant hospital where animals rescued from performing at circuses and temples are given a chance to recover.
The facility in Mathura, in the state of Uttar Pradesh, is run by conservation group Wildlife SOS and has so far saved 26 of the animals from captivity with the help of Indian state governments.
Volunteers said many of the elephants are socially isolated and psychologically traumatised after their time in captivity, while many have ongoing medical problems.
