Shirley and Jenny


This was part of Nature on PBS, the story of the reunion of two Elephants separated for 25 years.  My sister watched this and it just wrecked her.   There is no other way to describe the way these two mammoth creatures interact at the end of the video than “hugging”.  Perhaps elephants can love their friends as much as we humans love our own.

Watch this, and tell me that ivory is more valuable than the lives of the giving, loving creatures.
