Smorgasbord Afternoon Video rewind- Two crippled elephants meet after 20 years!

Get the tissues ready – slightly longer than the average at just over 7minutes but you do not really notice the time.  The most touching moments are towards the end.

Meet Shirley and Jenny – both crippled by years of wearing chains and working in a circus – they have not met for over 20 years when fate brings them together in an elephant sanctuary.

  2. Well, now I have to go wash my glasses. That was so moving, on every level, I have to take a break. But it was worth every teary-eyed minute. Such a beautiful reunion, and I’m so glad they are together. (The man saying goodbye broke my heart, as well.) Thank you for sharing, Sally.

  3. Fantastic video and Incredibly bittersweet to watch — I shed happy and sad tears both. 20 years of man’s inhumanity to the animals of our planet FINALLY brought to an end – despite the truly horrific reality of the maiming. I’m glad they had the foresight to capture the reunion for posterity and that you shared it, Sally.

    I’ve never been fond of animal acts in circus arenas, even as a kid, but I’ll NEVER attend a circus with animals again, even one that says it treats its animals humanely.

    Free at last – as God intended.

  4. So touching. When are people going to start treating animals as human… Come to think of it when are people going to start treating humans as human. If all of us here are human and cruelty and arrogance is not in OUR DNA then why does it seem cruelty and arrogance is everywhere. Surely if we are the majority not the minority, isn’t it time we stood up to be counted!
