Shirley was in her 20s and Jenny was just calf when they used to work as circus elephants. Both of these ended up becoming crippled thanks to some horrific life experiences. Back in 2000, PBS aired a documentary about these majestic creatures and captured their heart touching reunion on camera. These old friends were finally reunited after 20 long years. You’re going to be in tears when you see their reunion!
Shirley and Jenny are like family to each other. When they met at The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee for the first time in 20 years, they showered each other with all their love and care. Their bonding had withstood the test of time. Unfortunately Jenny passed away in 2006 from illness and Shirley took it particularly hard. Sanctuary director Carol Buckley says she refused to eat for two days following her best friend’s death.
