Baby Elephant Reunites With Mom After Being Sold For Tourist Rides (Video)
Another day, another adorable baby animal video.
In 2011, baby elephant Me-Bai was taken from her mother, Mae Yui, and sold to give rides to tourists.
After four years of tirelessly carrying tourists around Thailand, Me-Bai was released and rescued by the Elephant Nature Park as part of their Pamper A Pachyderm program.
Staff hoped to reunite the newly freed elephant with her estranged mother, who lived in a distant village.
On Friday, after a three-day journey (on foot), Me-Bai and Mae Yui finally reunited.
