A Month Ago, She Was “Angry” and “Aggressive,” but Look at Her Now!A. Stout
Just a month ago, the Elephant Nature Park (ENP)—a rescue and rehabilitation center in Thailand—offered a new life to a 70-year-old elephant named Noi Nah. The “grandmother of the ENP” had been imprisoned in the abusive tourism industry her entire life. Naturally, she was a bit jaded when it came to humans; the ENP’s blog described her as being “angry” and “aggressive” when she first arrived.
But thanks to love, care, and freedom, Noi Nah is doing much, much better. Just look how happy she is, especially in the water!
Yes, love can definitely heal. And Noi Nah is living proof.
Sadly, her past experiences are common among elephants in countries like Thailand, India, Indonesia, and Cambodia. When they’re not carrying tourists on their backs (a practice that can kill them), captive elephants are often bound in chains. But people are working to give these beautiful animals humane treatment, and you can help them. Read on to find out how.
