The Urban Elephant

This is a beautiful story of Shirley the elephant and her keeper Solomon.  Trapped in captivity for many years, where only a patch of grass and a concrete stall were her home. Not seeing or interacting with another elephant for years.  Elephants are extremely affectionate with one another, so being without an elephant companion wears on their emotional health.

This is the story of Shirley and her release to an Elephant Sanctuary, where she sees an elephant for the first time.

It’s a beautiful video of how elephants are and the close relationship Solomon, her keeper, had with Shirley.
