Lawrence Anthony, a legend in South Africa and author of three 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 the US invasion in 2003.
On March 7, 2012, Lawrence Anthony died. He is remembered and missed by his wife, two sons, two grandsons and numerous elephants.
Two days after his passing, a remarkable thing happened! 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 twenty elephants had patiently walked over twelve miles to get to his South African house.
... many people were ... in awe, not only because of the supreme intelligence and precise timing that these elephants sensed about Lawrence' passing, but also because of the profound memory and emotion that 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. [My comment: elephants walking in queues is not uncommon.]
Lawrence' wife, Francoise, was especially touched, knowing that the elephants had not been to his house prior to that day for well over a year, yet they knew where they were going. The elephants obviously wanted to pay their deep respects, honoring their friend who'd saved their lives - so much respect that they stayed for two days and two nights. Then one morning, they left, making their long journey back home.
