Legend has it that an elephant never forgets. In this beautiful video Charlie Franks, a retired circus trainer from the 70s goes to visit his old companion, Nita. Charlie bought Nita when she was 5 years old. She was like a little baby for him and they traveled around the world doing shows with well known stars. When Charlie decided to retire, he couldn't bear the idea of leaving Nita in someone else's hands so he decided to donate her to the San Diego Wild Animal Park.
In this video, after 15 years Charlie goes to pay her a visit. It is a heart melting moment when Nita recognizes him and they do some of their old routines together. He asks her for a kiss and she embraces him with her trunk. He talks about her deep love for Nita and how that truly is like having a baby. A story of true love and friendship that will send a chill down your spine!
