Sook-Jai the elephant was brought into the metal cab of a shipping truck and slowly taken to her freedom.
 
She is 73 and had been trapped in the tourist industry since she was a baby. She was beaten into hard labour, and was now old and weak.
 
She is also both blind and deaf.
 
When she was discovered, Save Elephant Foundation got in their as quickly as they could.
 
But she had no idea where she was going when she got into the truck. When she finally realized, she had the most amazing reaction.
