The Touching Moment When Rescued Circus Elephants Are Reunited After 22 Years

Elephants Reunited After 22 Years

Elephants are one of the animals that we consistently witness expressing emotions we are accustomed to as humans, such as mourning the loss of a loved one. Their eyes and body language can be very telling of their feelings and emotional state.

A video taken at the Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee captures the moment when Shirley and Jenny, two elephants that worked together at a circus but were separated over 20 years ago, are reunited together for the first time since then. This emotional reunion is a happy moment for all but also serves as a sobering reminder of human captivity of animals for entertainment and the pain it can cause.
