Lawrence Anthony, a legend in South Africa and author of 3 Books including the bestseller
The Elephant Whisperer, Bravely rescued wildlife and rehabilitated elephants all over The
globe from human atrocities, including the courageous rescue Of Baghdad Zoo animals
during US invasion in 2003. On March 7, 2012 Lawrence Anthony died. He is
remembered and missed by His wife, 2 sons, 2 grandsons & numerous elephants.
Two days after his passing, the wild elephants showed up at his Home led by two large
matriarchs. Separate wild herds arrived in Droves to say goodbye to their beloved man-friend.
A total of 20 Elephants had patiently walked over 12 miles to get to his South African House.
Witnessing this spectacle, humans were obviously in awe, not only because
Of the supreme intelligence and precise timing that these elephants sensed
About Lawrence 's passing, but also because of the profound memory and
Emotion The beloved animals evoked in such an organized way: Walking
Slowly - for days - making their way in a solemn one-by-one queue from their
Habitat to his house.
Lawrence's wife, Francoise, was especially touched, knowing that the
Elephants had not been to his house prior to that day for well over a year!
But yet they knew where they were going. The elephants obviously wanted
To pay their deep respects, honouring their friend who'd saved their lives
So much respect that they stayed for 2 days 2 nights.
Then one morning, They left, making their long journey back home.
