Whenever we think of a loyal protective animal we automatically envision dogs-those beautiful canines who are always there to serve and keep us safe. In this story, you’re going to be pleasantly surprised that the extremely protective animal, that comes to the aid of the human she loves, is not a dog, but an elephant!
In this scene, two men are talking and hatching a plan. A third man, known as a mahout, stands several hundred feet away all by himself. A mahout is an elephant rider, trainer, or keeper. Mahout and elephant remain close and bonded to each other throughout their whole lives. It’s a beautiful relationship between man and animal and, soon, you will watch the loyalty and trust they have for each other unfold.
Moments later, one of the men runs and “attacks” the handler; bringing him to the ground. Two seconds later, Thongsri, a 17-year-old female elephant, comes charging onto the scene. She is in distress; you can see it in the way she is running, and you can hear it in her voice. Hoping to remove her handler from harm’s way, her loyalty and protective side are truly shining through at this very moment. Immediately the “attacker” runs away and the elephant circles around her handler as a way of protecting him from further danger. This elephant is a very loyal companion and a trustworthy friend. It’s a scene you’ll want to witness for yourself!
