When The Elephants Came To Mourn Lawrence Anthony - 'The Elephant Whispe...


 
Published on May 31, 2017
For
12 hours, two herds of wild South African Elephants slowly made their
way through the Zululand bush until they reached the house of late
author Lawrence Anthony, the conservationist who saved their lives. The
formerly violent, rogue Elephants, destined to be shot a few years ago
as pests, were rescued and rehabilitated by Anthony, who had grown up in
the bush and was known as the "Elephant Whisperer."

For two days
the herds loitered at Anthony's rural compound on the vast Thula Thula
game reserve in the South African KwaZulu -- to say good-bye to the man
they loved. But how did they know he had died? Known for his unique
ability to calm traumatized Elephants, Anthony had become a legend. He
is the author of three books, Babylon Ark, detailing his efforts to
rescue the animals at Baghdad Zoo during the Iraqi war, the forthcoming
The Last Rhinos, and his bestselling The Elephants Whisperer.

There
are two Elephants herds at Thula Thula. According to his son Dylan,
both arrived at the Anthony family compound shortly after Anthony's
death. "They had not visited the house for a year and a half and it must
have taken them about 12 hours to make the journey," Dylan is quoted in
various local news accounts. "The first herd arrived on Sunday and the
second herd, a day later. They all hung around for about two days before
making their way back into the bush. "Elephants have long been known to
mourn their dead.
