elephant parade! elephants are such wonderful, amazing creatures...it is a crime against humanity and the animals for how they are treated in their native lands...do some reading surrounding the issue. it's tragic all around. :(
Elephants have been known to die of broken hearts if a mate dies. They refuse to eat and will lay down, shedding tears until they starve to death. They refuse all human help. Scientists are beginning to believe that animals do have emotions and that their feelings may be more intense and unfiltered than our own.
