Elephants are magnificent creatures. These gentle giants are known to be social, kind, emotional, and kindhearted. Many elephant enthusiasts argue that their intelligence is actually comparable to that of humans themselves. These characteristics have helped humans bond with them. The video below shows us the sympathetic part of an elephant.

Thongsri is a 17 year old elephant from Chiang Mai, Thailand. This cute girl was basking out in the sun when she noticed that her caretaker was in a bit of a bind. She saw a man attacking her caretaker and it wasn’t long before she came running to protect him. The attacking was staged, but Thongsri’s reaction is genuine. The way she kneeled down to check on her caretakers is really heartwarming!
