Raju, the elephant that gained worldwide fame after crying when it was rescued in July after enduring 50 years of abuse, is now facing the unthinkable—a return to its previous owner.

The abusive elephant owner, identified as Mr. Shahid, has taken legal action in an attempt to regain custody of Raju, according to the group that organized the nighttime rescue of the animal in the Uttar Pradesh area of India.
