An elephant never forgets, as they say, and it can give credit for its impeccable memory to its powerful brain. Unfortunately, the memories some elephants have aren’t always pleasant ones.
Case in point: this 30-year-old pachyderm named Ben, who was recently the victim of a poacher attack. Luckily, his memory helped him figure out just what to do!
He limped over to Bumi Hills Safari Lodge in Kariba, Zimbabwe. Though the lodge’s vet was gone for the weekend, another vet was able to fly in so Ben could be cared for. Over the next six hours, Ben barely moved from outside the balcony.
Ben needed a follow-up procedure, but his limp had improved and he was expected to make a full recovery—all because he knew exactly where he could find help!
