Mara’s Reunion With Bambi and Rana

One morning, when visiting caregiver Nicole got to the barn, it was overcast with a little bit of rain. Bambi and Rana were in Yard 5 rumbling and roaring and running around. They kept walking over to the gate between Yards 4 and 5 and just staring through it. Though both elephants knew they could walk through the opening, they continued to look through the space for some reason.

After about 5 minutes, you could see Mara walking down the road toward them. No matter how loudly her two friends called, Mara never quickened her pace. Finally she got to the gate where Rana and Bambi were standing. All three stood together for about 10 minutes after that and had a conversation that included plenty of rumbles and squeaks.

    Excuse me for a moment while I engage in a bit of hyperbole, but is this just about the coolest place on Earth for formerly neglected, abused animals to be?

    To see and hear this beautiful interaction between friends is heartwarming to any advocate for sanctuary freedom for elephants. To hear the quiet rumbling, and the squeeks and see the body language between these friends is what sanctuary freedom is all about. I wish this for every captive elephant because #sanctuaryheals.🐘🐘🐘❤️ Thank you GSE for ALL you do for these precious girls.
