Tarra the Elephant & Bella the dog … Disney Movie? NOT!

Tarra (elephant) and Bella (dog) have attracted the folks at Disney. At the nonprofit Elephant Sanctuary in Hohenwald, Tennessee where 18 elephants have found a second home, these too have found themselves needing talent agents after the great news story in January.

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.
