Camera Critters-The Elephant Sanctuary

I love elephants! They are beautiful, gentle, wise souls.

There's an amazing place in Tennessee that lucky elephants called "their forever home".

From The Elephant Sanctuary web site, "To provide a haven for old, sick or needy elephants in a setting of green pastures, dense forests, spring-fed ponds and heated barns for cold winter nights."

Sounds lovely!

This morning on CBS, they had a segment on Tarra and Bella, who are best friends.

Tarra is an 8,700 pound Asian elephant. And Bella, is a dog.

Enjoy the video!

  1. What a wonderful story! My niece, when she lived in Seattle, worked very hard to rescue one of their zoo elephants - I think her name was Bamboo - and get her released to this Sanctuary. I don't think they have succeeded yet but I think they are still trying. Thanks for the video.

  2. I too love elephants. And I have been lucky enough to get some close shots of them.
    Have a great year ahead. :)

  3. That clip was sooooooo touching! Thanks for sharing it.
