The Love of Elephants
Animals never cease to amaze us, and they're so much smarter than we think.
Lawrence Anthony, a legend in South Africa and author of three books including the bestseller The Elephant Whisperer, bravely rescued wildlife and rehabilitated elephants all over the globe from human atrocities, including the courageous rescue of the Baghdad Zoo animals during the U.S. invasion in 2003.
On March 7, 2012 Lawrence Anthony died.
He is remembered and missed by his wife, two sons, two grandsons and numerous elephants.
Two days after his passing, the wild elephants showed up at his home led by two large matriarchs.
Separate wild herds arrived in droves to say goodbye to their beloved man-friend.
A total of 20 elephants had patiently walked over 12 miles to get to his South African home.
Witnessing this spectacle, humans were obviously in awe, not only because of the supreme intelligence and precise timing that these elephants sensed about Lawrence's passing, but also because of the profound memory and emotion the beloved animals evoked in such an organized way:
Walking slowly — for days — making their way in a solemn one-by-one queue from their
habitat to his house
Lawrence's wife, Francoise, was especially touched, knowing that the elephants had not been to his house prior to that day for well over a year!
But yet they knew where they were going.
The elephants obviously wanted to pay their deep respects, honoring their friend who'd saved their lives — so much respect that they stayed for two days and two nights. Then one morning they left, making their long journey back home.
