Elephants have some of the most emotionally complex lives in the animal kingdom. If you need proof, look no further.

Thongsri is a 17-year-old elephant living at a sanctuary in Chiang Mai, Thailand, and when she sees her caretaker in trouble, she does the only thing she knows how to do.

You can’t watch this video and see anything but Thongsri’s genuine concern for her caretaker. She wasn’t going to let anything happen to him.
