Soulmate Loses Best Friend

Tarra The Elephant Loses Her Best Friend Bella – Celebration Of A True Friendship

We have previously introduced you all to Tarra the elephant and Bella the stray dog, who became inseparable from the moment they met. These two soulmates lived together and played together and explored the 2700 acres of The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee. 

For nearly a decade, Tarra had been best friends with a dog named Bella, a stray who wandered onto the sanctuary grounds and into the heart of the gentle giant.

Tarra and Bella clearly loved each other…….Bella and Tarra 4







Although they lived on over 2000 acres, Tarra the elephant could not escape the horrific incident she encountered last week. Sanctuary workers found Bella’s body, it looked like she had been killed by coyotes and that Tarra had carried her body home.

Tarra displayed all the symptoms you’d expect to see in someone who lost a good friend – which is exactly what happened.

“There’s nothing we can do to take away her pain,” said Atkinson. “The only ones who can help now are the elephants. And that is already happening.”

As we animal lovers know, compassion is much more than just a human trait…….

You need to see the true and unconditional love that these two friends shared….

Although this is an older story, as a story of love and devotion within animals, it is still as relevant today.

Thanks to The Elephant Sanctuary for sharing the video and CBS for the story.
