Oh boy, get ready for some elephant sized happy tears!

At three years old, Me-Bai the elephant was ripped from her mother’s side and sold into the Thai tourism industry. The poor calf was subjected to a brutal “breaking” period and forced to give rides to paying customers day in and day out. This trauma and stress took a serious toll on Me-Bai’s well-being and she grew too weak to carry tourists.

Lucky for this young elephant, her owner took pity on her and retired her to Elephant Nature Park. Once she was released to Elephant Nature Park, Me-Bai’s new caretakers set out on a mission to find this little elephant’s mother. Within a matter of weeks, they located Mae Yum, Me-Bai’s mom and set their glorious reunion into motion.

In this video, Mae Yum and Me-Bai are finally reunited! It has been three years since this mother/daughter pair have seen one another. The joy and love that they exude is sure to warm your heart.

A big thank you to all the kind people at Elephant Nature Park who made this reunion possible! Enjoy your life together, Me-Bai and Mae Yum!

I learned back in my early 20\'s how emotional and loving elephants are, and their mistreatment makes me sick. I was watching a nature show, and there was a terrible drought in the part of Africa where these elephants lived, and they had to travel as much as 50 miles a day trying to find food and water. A mother elephant whose milk ran dry had to watch her new baby die (thank god in only took a day or two - it was tearing me up inside). She stayed by her baby\'s body, and the rest of the herd had to keep moving or die too, and only one other female stayed with her. Finally she lifted the tiny body with her trunk and CARRIED him for two solid weeks. They caught up with the rest of the herd, and she was starving because she wouldn\'t put her dead baby down. Finally two others came over, stroking her and the baby with their trunks, whispering to her, rubbing their heads on hers and finally they were able to gently pry the body from the grieving mother and lay it gently on the ground. She swayed and moaned and the others got branches and sticks to cover the baby, and the whole herd came over and swayed and sang with the mother, and finally led her away to save her life. How can even the most horrible person kill or even mistreat an elephant? If Humanity could only live up to the loving souls of elephants, our world would be beautiful.

So cute! But it's so sad for them being separated for so long. I wish every single animal in the world lived peacefully in the wild. It's us humans fault!
