Have you ever wondered about elephant communication?
The Dallas Zoo had an elephant, named Jenny, who was alone for 22 years after they had sent one elephant to another zoo for mating. There was talk about sending her to a zoo in Mexico, but the outcry from animal lovers prevented that. Now, finally, there are 2 more elephants.
What a moving video of 2 elephants reunited after 22 years!
While this reunion is beautiful, there is an underlying, gut-wrenching pathos. Elephants are very social animals and crave company, caring, and support from their own kind which they ordinarily share. Isolation, like their all-to-frequent treatment in circuses, is unconscionable torture. It is cruel to deprive an elephant of a companion … but for 22 years? It is nearly barbaric.
Can you imagine the loneliness these animals felt to have been isolated for so long when they are naturally loving toward all members of their troop. At least now they each have companions to spend their days with.
Elephant communication is a critical part of the herd dynamics, and social structure. They talk to each other all the time, and do not do well in isolation.
It’s very rare for elephants to display this kind of emotion in captivity.
It’s probably the first time such a thing has been documented on film. Jenny and Shirley were elephants at the same circus when Jenny was a calf, and Shirley was in her twenties. The two lived one winter together, but then were separated twenty-two years ago. May Shirley live many more years to enjoy fully what she has longed for nearly a quarter of a century.
