epa03491320 (10/14) Maali is splashed with a bucket of water by Filipino Noel Co, who has been her caretaker for several years at the Manila Zoo, Philippines, 18 October 2012. Maali, a 38 year-old Asian elephant, has been the focus of international campaign aimed at freeing her from the confines of Manila Zoo, where she has spent the last 35 years alone in a concrete enclosure. In 1977, Maali, only 3 years old then, was imported from Sri Lanka and shipped to the Philippines. She was donated to the children of Manila by the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage in Sri Lanka, after her mother was allegedly killed by poachers. EPA/DENNIS M.
