(The following excerpt from Elephant Meets Another Elephant For First Time In 30 Years recently appeared on aol.com. To view it in its entirety click on the link below.) 

Two African Elephants greeted each other for the first time at the San Diego Zoo. But before this precious moment, 41-year-old Mila led a life of solitude performing in the circus, before being moved to a zoo in New England.

Mila’s former keeper wanted her to reunite with other African elephants, but she died when Mila accidentally crushed her. The tragedy sparked $1.5 million in fundraising sent from people who wanted to bring Mila to the San Diego Zoo to live with her species.

Now, she will spend her days hanging out with other African elephants including her new pal Mary.

Zookeepers say Mila was surprised to see something as big as her after being solo for more than three decades, but she’s in good hands (or should we say trunks?).

Check out video in this link to see it’s clearly the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
