A herd of twenty elephants tramped to the home of the man who saved them upon his death, stayed there for hours, and returned the following year.
From Psychology Today:
We all know tha tmany animals grieve the loss of family and friends and here's a wonderful acknowledgement of broken-hearted elephants mourning the loss of their human friend, Lawrence Anthony, author of The Elephant Whisperer(see alsoand).
"Tonight at Thula Thula, the whole herd arrived at the main house, home to Lawrence and I. We had not seen them here for a very long time. Extraordinary proof of animal sensitivity and awareness that only a few humans can perceive. And Lawrence was one of them. Thank you for your wonderful messages. Lawrence's legacy will be with us forever at Thula Thula."And they returned the next year, as the BBC points out:
A herd of elephants marched 12 hours to the house of Lawrence Anthony after he died – the man who saved them. They stayed there silent for two days.
Exactly one year after his death, to the day, the herd marched to his house again. It is something that science cannot explain.
I wonder how many of them were pink? Perhaps this was a bit of an Irish wake?
Elephants ARE very smart. It is not impossible to believe they showed up out of respect. Aftter all, elephants have burial rituals for their own. Maybe they really DO remember...
How many were there? Twenty, I believe? So there are twenty benevolent elephants! Say that three times fast!
