They say that elephants have a great memory and never forget things easily. Nearly 20 years ago Shirley and Jenny, these two elephants in the video below were rescued from a circus. Jenny was a calf and Shirley was in her twenties at that time. They were together through all the hard and sorrowful moments but were separated when they were rescued. After all those years of separation, they finally got to meet each other and the moment of their reunion is nothing like I have ever seen. I had tears flowing all over.
Shirley and Jenny are family to each other. Even though circumstances forced them to live separate lives for more than 20 years, they were finally reunited at The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee. As soon as they saw each other, it seemed like they immediately continued where they left off. These two friends lived in freedom together in the sanctuary but unfortunately in 2006 Jenny suddenly passed away from illness leaving Shirley devastated. According to the Sanctuary director Carol Buckley, Shirley refused to eat for two days following her best friend’s death.
