Any animal lover can tell you that dogs are known as Man’s Best Friend for good reason. However, if there is any creature on earth that can come in at a close second, it might be the incredible elephant.
Like many poor dogs who have seen the worst side of mankind, humans have done some pretty terrible things to most elephants on the planet. We have stolen their land, torn them from their families, and forced them into slavery, many times for our own entertainment.
Yet elephants still learn to trust their human companions and protect their caretakers when they fear danger. In the following video, a 17-year-old elephant at a nature park sanctuary in Chiang Mai, Thailand shows this incredible bond when she starts to worry about one of her caretakers.
The gigantic elephant named Thongsri comes right to the rescue of her mahout, which is someone who works with, rides, and tends an elephant, and has taken care of her for most of her life.
Check out their incredible bond below and don’t forget to SHARE this video with a friend.
