Elephant forces all guests away, so the custodian can sing a lullaby to her adopted Baby. A close human-animal relationship is such a truly magnificent thing to witness to. That someone has a deep bond to their pet, dog, or bird in my honest opinion seems like the purest thing in the entire world.
A close human-animal connection is indeed a genuinely beautiful thing to see. That someone has a deep bond to their pet, dog, or bird in my humble opinion feels like the truest thing in the entire world, and seeing a human establishing a bond with an animal that is not considered your normal pet is even more interesting.
There's an amazing video going around on YouTube showing a woman with an inexplicably deep attachment to the world's largest land animal.
“While I was meeting with visitors, Faa Mai suddenly intruded on our talk with clear intent. She pushed me along out into the field, directing me somewhere and I wondered what it was that she really wanted,” reads the description of the video. “Finally, Faa Mai took me to see the little Thong Ae, whom she wants to adopt as her own. In the end, it seems as if Faa Mai wanted me to lullaby her little friend, as she is so fond when I sing a lullaby to her. It is so beautiful to see my little girl who has such a heart of care. I am so proud of this girl!”
All this actually occurred at Elephant Nature Park, situated in northern Thailand's Chiang Mai province. Elephant Nature Park is a rescue and rehabilitation center for elephants whose main aim is to rescue injured elephants and provide them with sanctuaries.
It turns out since she was born, Lek Chailert has taken care of Faa Mai and that's why they managed to develop such a strong bond.
Probably when the nature park saved another young elephant, Faa Mai wanted to "adopt" the little cutie and give her the same amount of affection she had earned from her caretaker, Lek Chailert.
