Elephants never forget
I have always loved elephants and never cease to be amazed by their immense size and incredible social structures; sadly there are fewer and fewer in natural habitats and zoo conditions are horrible for so intelligent an animal (for any animal for that matter). People still poach elephants for the ivory and the spaces they once roamed freely are being encroached upon.
Thanks to the folks at The Elephant Sanctuary in rural Tennessee who for years have been monitoring the welfare of elephants in captivity and who have been able to offer refuge to several dozen of these amazing pachyderms. How many elephants can you fit in a Mini Cooper?
