Elephant and a gentle heart

 Have you ever imagined that even a wise, big animal like telephant does have a really gentle heart fot other species. This had happened in The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee. And with all my belief this will also happen in many other place.

 Tarra the elephant and her pet dog, Bella had been the nature's unexpected couple at The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee. The relationship first happened several years ago when a stray dog wandered onto the Sanctuary's property. Rather than scare off the outsider, one elephant in particular, Tarra, immediately welcomed the stray with very open arms. Not long after this sudden moment, the two became inseparable. In fact, Tarra seemed to spend more time with Bella than she did with other elephants.

 One ocassion happen that proved the relationship is very stront is when Bella suffered a spinal cord injury and lost the use of her legs. Caretakers took her indoors to receive medical assistance. For three weeks, Bella was bed-bound, and for the entire three weeks Tarra stood just outside the building holding vigil, refusing to leave Bella's side. When the two were finally met again, their embrace made it clear to everyone involved just how special their bond was. I have also included the video that you can watch by yourself about thi special relationship.

 Even a giant animal like an elephant can have a gentle heart.
