A few years ago the odd coupling of a dog and an elephant became an internet sensation when an elephant sanctuary in Tennessee posted Video’s of the best buds. Bella the Dog and Tarra the Asian elephant had become inseparable and the videos soon became viral.
The Sanctuary unfortunately reported that Bella went missing and Bella’s body was discovered close to the barn Tarra shares with Bella and five other elephants. It appears Bella had been attacked by animals, probably coyotes.
Elephants are well know to grieve for their social companions and usually pay great attention to their bodies. Sanctuary staff are convinced Tarra experienced the death of her companion that night and bought her bought her home and said her goodbyes. A tribute page has been set-up in Bella’s honor.
