85

A herd of elephants marched a whole 12 hours to the house of Lawrence Anthony, a man who saved them, after he had died and stayed there, silent for two-days.

Preciscley one-year after his death, the same herd marched to his house again to pay there respects, this is something science cannot explain.

Lawrence Anthony was a great man, he created the Thula Thula Game Reserve in South Africa and opened its doors to wild elephants.

Jordan on Twitter: "A herd of elephants marched 12 hours to the house of  Lawrence Anthony after he died – the man who saved them. They stayed there  silent for two days.

He was known as ‘The Elephant Whisperer’ and took it in his stride to nurture these huge intelligent animals. He began treating them like children, using words and gestures to let them know they were safe with him.

He focused on the matriarch, since elephant herds are always headed up by one, this was a good way to connect with the rest of the elephants.

He connected very well with one Matriarch called Nana, she and the herd grew very fond of Lawrence and his wife, they would even spend time in their house.

Elephants Travel 12 Hours To Attend A Vigil For The Man Who Rescued Them

After years of great conservation work as well as building strong bonds with the local elephant herds and other animals, Lawrence, unfortunately, passed away.

Upon his passing, Nana led two elephant herds on a 12-hour journey to Lawrence’s house to pay their respects. They remained outside of the house for two full days as they stood vigil before returning to their lives.
