    "The long running story of Sunder, the much-loved yet much-abused young elephant (see video below), seems to have reached a happy conclusion as he is now being moved into a 49.5 hectare forested elephant care centre in Bangalore.

    Sunder was placed onto a truck by a team of experts who had travelled to Kolhapur to work with the Maharashtra Forest Department, and he is now on his way to the sanctuary, as per an order of India’s Supreme Court. At the centre, he will have the company of 13 other elephants."
