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!

WE, human beings think ourselves very smart and the most intelligent living animals in the World and its whereabouts!! BUT we are not that smart and many (so called) animals are very much smarter than we are and that is why we are so amazed when some animals react even better than human beings!! Elephants, as many other animals, are more respectable towards their kin and other animals and humans than humans towards humans!! Congratulations towards those who do not think themselves superior to any animal, remember we are also ANIMALS of another specie!

That little baby looks so much older than she is. We, humans, have so much bad karma for what we allow animals to suffer.
How can we do this sort of thing to animal families? I can\'t imagine the terror or being violently pulled away from your family to suffer a life of torture. How can we do this?

Humans do things like this because we are more cruel than almost all other animals.
Without humans, the earth would be a better place.
