Wildlife SOS will continue to fight to get the elephants back.
"The rescued blind and sick elephants being returned to the circus which abused them came as a shock to everyone," Kartick Satyanarayan, Wildlife SOS cofounder, told The Dodo. "This is a sad day for elephant protection in India. However, we cannot give up the fight, and our struggle will go on."
