They say that an 'elephant never forgets' and it is most evident when attending an elephant funeral. Elephants are the only species besides humans that mourn when a loved one dies. It's a somber sight, but also a heartfelt and touching one.

We would like to give a special thanks to ElephantsNeverForget.ca, filmmakers Patricia Sims and Michael Zo Clark, the Elephant Reintroduction Foundation, and Canazwest Pictures Inc.

Thirsty Elephant Charges Through Village & Never Say 'No' To A Rhino

Thirsty Elephant Charges Through Village & Never Say 'No' To A Rhino

Nothing will send you diving for cover like a thirsty, frustrated elephant! Unfortunately, there's no water to be found in this Indian village, only plenty of things to break. Luckily for the humans involved, they all escape Mr. Elephant's wrath—even the clueless biker who rides straight into the action! Garth De Bruno Austin has quite the tale to tell after the veteran photographer's African photo shoot once again brings him face-to-face with a friendly female rhino. Apparently, he's been shooting in that area long enough for the powerful animal to feel comfortable asking for a scratch. Otherwise, this encounter would be a dangerous no-no. Garth's now filming his own feature documentary about rhino poaching called "Disunity." It'll be a must-watch when it premieres later this year! View Now
