In 2003, the zoo agreed to send Shirley to The Elephant Sanctuary, which provides elephants with hundreds of acres to wander around, as well as the option of a warm barn to sleep in. In this video, we see Shirley and Solomon’s last days and moments together before he takes her chain off for good. Fair warning: you’ll want your tissues close. The first time I saw this I made the mistake of not having any and was reduced to a sobbing mess by the end.
