The elephant and the sheep

When a baby elephant’s mother fell down a cliff, the orphan soon weakened. The Shamwari Rehabilitation Centre rescued her and transported her to safe haven. There they began the challenging task of trying to persuade him to accept bottle feeding.

They knew the elephant needed love as well as food. Remembering their success bonding a rhino with a sheep, they cast about for an ovine pal. At a nearby sheep farm, they picked out Albert. The elephant put the run on the strange animal until Albert let his curiosity turn the tables and began pushing back. What happened then is a beautiful story of interspecies friendship.

The documentary is just over 50 minutes and well worth watching.
