THE ELEPHANT’S JOURNEY TO PAY RESPECT, BUT HOW DID THEY KNOW?

Lawrence Anthony, a leg­end in South Africa and author of 3 books
includ­ing the best­seller, The Ele­phant Whis­perer.

He bravely res­cued wildlife and reha­bil­i­tated ele­phants all over the
globe from human atroc­i­ties, includ­ing the coura­geous res­cue of Bagh­dad
Zoo Ani­mals dur­ing US inva­sion in 2003. On March 7, 2012 Lawrence Anthony
died. He is remem­bered and missed by his wife, 2 sons, 2 grand­sons,
and numer­ous elephants.

Two days after his pass­ing, the wild ele­phants showed up at his home led
by two large matri­archs. Sep­a­rate wild herds arrived in droves to say
good­bye to their beloved ‘man-friend’. A total of 31 ele­phants had
patiently walked over 12 miles to get to his South African House.

Wit­ness­ing this spec­ta­cle, humans were obvi­ously in awe not only because
of the supreme intel­li­gence and pre­cise tim­ing that these ele­phants
sensed about Lawrence’s pass­ing, but also because of the pro­found mem­ory
and emo­tion the beloved ani­mals evoked in such an orga­nized way: Walk­ing
slowly, for days, mak­ing their way in a solemn one-by-one queue from
their habi­tat to his house. Lawrence ‘s wife, Fran­coise, was espe­cially
touched, know­ing that the ele­phants had not been to his house prior to that
day for well over 3 years!

But yet they knew where they were going. The ele­phants obvi­ously
wanted to pay their deep respects, hon­or­ing their friend who’d saved
their lives — so much respect that they stayed for 2 days 2 nights
with­out eat­ing any­thing. Then one morn­ing, they left, mak­ing their long
jour­ney back home.

Soooooo.….……HOW did they know Lawrence had passed away?!?! SOMETHING
IN THE UNIVERSE IS GREATER AND DEEPER THAN HUMAN INTELLIGENCE.
