It is no longer unknown that animals too, just like humans have feelings. The can sense love and misery, fear and satisfaction. Every now and then we come across pictures or recordings that leave us amused with their sensitivity and sensibility.
Once such incident was captured on the camera back in 2000. When the two elephants saw each other after 22 years, they were overflowing with love and affection.
This happened at the Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee. The two elephants Shirley and Jenny were a part of circus troop earlier. The two had been separated for 22 long years. It took no time for them to recognize each other as soon as they met. But that’s not something very surprising. It is a well-known fact that elephants have a staggering ability to recall things. What left people amazed was how the two elephants reacted in the moment of such a pleasant surprise. Everyone who witnessed this reunion was taken aback.
It is indeed heartwarming to see them expressing joy upon seeing a long-lost friend after two decades. The way they shower love on each other makes us believe that animals are anything but beasts. Watch the amazing video below:

This video is nice to watch, but it also leaves us with a thought to ponder upon. These mute innocent creatures deserve something more than just survival.
