    It's such a great story. I've watched it several times since last week. Here's the other WS thread to the same story. Maybe they could be merged?

    I live in the town where this elephant sanctuary is. What they do there for these poor abused elephants is amazing and as it showed in the video, they take in poor stray dogs and let them live there carefree and well cared for. Some of the stories of abuse that these poor elephants have suffered are so sad. The sanctuary is closed to visitors, protecting the elephants and letting them live their retirement in peace, but they do have a webcam that you can go and watch the elephants. It really is interesting to watch them. This video of Tara and Bella just made my day, thank you for posting it.

    I came on W/S today and instead of looking up depressing Anthony stuff I went for this video. Yes I am crying! I am finishing 14 yrs. 24 hr. care of my quadrapelgic brother. He has been inthe hospital since Nov. suffering with a body that can no longer function as is. I'v been struggling with this path were on and as difficult as it is I'm not ready to miss him. Thank you for posting this! Nothings over till it's over.
