The tusker Rivaldo was held captured for nearly three months before being released in the Mudumalai Tiger Reserve on Monday. It seems like he's pretty happy about it.
An adorable video of an elephant in India's Tamil Nadu state bathing after being freed in the wild has gone viral. In the clip shared by Indian Administrator Supriya Sahu, the animal can be seen happily spraying mud on his body with his trunk.
