Two elephants reunite after 25 years. Tears ….

Shirley & JennyShirley & Jenny

25 years ago, Shirley and Jenny were together in a circus, used as performing elephants.

Jenny was only an infant and had just arrived from Asia. Shirley became Jenny’s surrogate mom.

Then they were separated.

More than 20 years later, a crippled Shirley was brought to the Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee. After spending two decades alone, Shirley once again met other elephants and . . . her old friend Jenny.

Watch what happens. Unless your heart is made of ice, you will weep . . . .

And may God bless Solomon, Shirley’s caretaker for 20 years.

I’ve seen this video 4 or 5 times and cry every time. It’s definitely one of the sweetest stories ever. I have always loved elephants and over the years, every so often, a circus elephant would go rogue, sometimes killing someone. Usually, these elephants were executed. Sickening. Finally though, humans are starting to wake up and realize the suffering we are causing all animals in restrictive captivity. I think SeaWorld will be making major changes in their program in years to come, given what has transpired in recent years. Keeping these sea mammals in captivity is a crime. We simply… Read more »
