At just three and a half years old, she was taken from her mother and sold to work carrying tourists. She suffered under a training regimen meant to break her spirit and make her easier to work with. After three years of hard labor and emotional distress, she could take no more and stopped eating as a result of her depression.
Fortunately, her owner decided to release her to Elephant Nature Park, a sanctuary for distressed elephants. Rescuers managed to track her mother down and reunited the pair in April 2015. They now live at the park, where Me-Bai is learning to live in the wild.
Check out how other sanctuaries are improving the lives of rescued elephants and facilitating touching reunions.
