Animal Odd Couple … the most amazing story you will ever see

Tarra, and, underneath, Bella. Also, sanctuary co-founder Scott Blais with the duo.

Special Golden friend Jessica (h/t) shared this incredible tale with me. I am just speechless. It says so much, on multiple levels, striking an important cord in a world characterized by aggression towards those who look different.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

I am concerned about how Tarra will handle one day losing her Bella, as elephants’ life spans mirror ours and Bella’s, of course, is significantly shorter. Elephants, who cry saltwater tears as we do, grieve deeply for those they love. So, I hope the folks at the sanctuary will be able to help her through the process.
