As I write this, Gray is struggling to survive. Please help!
"Gray" the elephant is in a fight for his life.
He was injured by a speeding train as he was crossing the tracks in Northeast India. Gray staggered off the tracks and into the forest near a wildlife sanctuary. Workers in the sanctuary reported hearing his cries trumpeting through the woods in the early morning hours.
The next morning Gray was found sitting alone hunched over and in pain. Members of the Forest Dept called IFAW's Wildlife Rescue Center and our veterinarian rushed to the scene with a team of rescuers.
The vets were eventually able to tranquilize Gray, and they then began treating his wounds to the chest, shoulder region, front left leg, and knee joints. They cleaned his deep open wounds, and gave him vitamins and painkillers.
As I write, the veterinary team is going back to the forest today to check on him and give him further treatment.
Will you help us save Gray and help us protect other elephants from tragedies like this?
