What the Elephant Sees
“I don’t know who was the first person to put the chains on, but I’m glad to be the last one to take them off.”
So says the caring animal caretaker in this wonderfully powerful video of two former circus elephants named Shirley and Jenny. They’ve finally been released after two decades of captivity, having spent most of their lives in what must have been prison cell for animals of their intelligence and size.
Now, they’re retired and free to live out what remains of their years in a sanctuary. Together again, after 25 years apart.
Freedom isn’t just a human struggle. It’s also a humanitarian one.
An elephant never forgets.
