North America harbours more than 300 Asian elephants. The elephant featured in the video below, Shirley, is one of them. This beautiful girl is 52 years old and she is looked after by a wonderful man called Solomon James. Solomon has done everything he can to make the big elephant as comfortable as possible at the Louisiana Purchase Zoo. Shirley has lived in the same plot of grass and concrete stall for 22 long years.
She hasn’t seen another elephant for the past two decades. Solomon stays with the big girl in order to let her know that she is not alone. The zoo realized that they couldn’t offer Shirley the life she deserved, so they decided to send her to the Tennessee Elephant Sanctuary. That meant Solomon had to bid farewell to his old friend. Wait till you see this touching two-time Emmy Award winning film for yourself!
