San Diego Zoo

"young elephants that have experienced assaults on their psyches may exhibit signs of post traumatic stress, just like orphaned children in the wake of war or genocide.
most of the orphans recover to become wild elephants again. they return in wary, halting, half measures at first, caught between a deep devotion to their human caregivers and the irresistible call of their true selves."

-Dame Daphne Sheldrick
