Two Abused Elephants Find Enduring Friendship at a Sanctuary

Years of abuse didn’t prevent these two elephants from giving unconditional love to each other.

Mae Perm and Jokia are two elephants who share tragic histories. Both elephants were rescued from the logging industry where they were subjected to exploitation and harsh conditions. Their heartbreaking experiences had caused them both physical and mental damages.

Luckily, both were rescued and were given a better chance in life at an elephant sanctuary in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Elephant Nature Park is home to rescue elephants across three countries since 1992.

The two had been best of friends since entering the park. In fact, Mae Perm, who was the first rescue elephant in the sanctuary, takes care of her blind buddy.

Jokia is blind but she [has opened] her heart and not let her heart [be] blindJ,” they wrote in the video’s description.

The heartwarming video shows Mae Perm and Jokia playing near a bank in the sanctuary. Despite the tragedies each had gone through, the two creatures seem to display unconditional love and affection to each other.

Eventually, the circus animals came out to take their turn entertaining the audience and man! I was at the edge of my seat. Their tricks were mind-blowing and it was pretty fascinating to watch them obey every word of their master.

It was, however later on in my life as an adult that I realized there was absolutely nothing to admire about seeing animals in circus shows. Sure, they’re incredibly talented but the sad truth about them is that they are often cramped and locked in uncomfortable cages while traveling extensively.
