The staff of Elephant Nature Park and Save Elephant Foundation, located in Thailand, specializes in helping elephants that need their support.
Recently, they reunited two elephants. The elephants were half-sisters.
Chana and Sai Thong grew up together and went everywhere with each other. The elephants even went to sell bananas and sugarcane together because they were allowed to enter many places.
One day, Chana had an accident and broke her hind leg. Saengduean “Lek” Chailert, the founder of the Save Elephant Foundation, brought a team of veterinarians to help. The elephant was treated for 4 to 5 months and was later taken away for further care.
Sai Thong and her injured sister separated, but they shared a strong bond. Several wildlife researchers from different countries have claimed that elephants benefit significantly from having an elder sister in the family.
However, recently, the elephant sisters got reunited. This was because Sai Thong was unwell. As soon as the sisters reunited, they instantly started to play with each other like babies.
The rumpling and the squealing of the elephants could make anyone know they were happy. Amongst elephants, elder sisters have a profound impact on their younger siblings. They help shape the lives of the younger siblings.
Thanks to the sanctuary, Chana and Sai Thong have resumed their sisterly relations. Their behavior determined that they had never forgotten each other. The two sisters squeaked in joy after being reunited.
