The ability to be grateful among animals is amazing. This mother elephant has found a way to express her gratitude to the people who not only saved her life but also gave her their care, love and affection.
The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust sanctuary takes care of orphaned elephants, raising them until they are ready to be released back into the wild. Yatta was returned to the reserve in 1999, and after 10 years, she returned to the wild.
After eight years, Yatta decided to visit everyone who was a family to her. She wanted to say that she hasn’t forgotten the people who were so nice to her.
And she’s not alone. Yatta surprised the caretakers at the reserve by bringing her baby to show her carers. This touching moment was captured on camera.
This warm moment melted everyone’s hearts at the center. They named the little creature Yoyo.
Yatta once showed the staff her first baby. It seemed she wanted to show her trust and affection, to bring her newborn to the place where she receives love and care.
For the elephant family means absolutely everything. Back in the wild, Yatt has been farming for her family, which is why it was no big surprise for the staff to see the mama introduce her new family member to the former human family.
She will never forget those wonderful ten years when she was surrounded by love and comfort at the center.
It is widespread for elephants to return to places where they have been happy.
