Heartwarming Moment Wild Elephant Recognises The Vet Who Treated Him 12 Years Ago

This is the moment an elephant recognises a vet who treated him 12 years ago. Luckily it was caught on camera. A 31-year-old bull elephant had an unexpected reunion with Dr Maneeon of Thailand. They met in 2009 when the elephant was found struggling and taken straight to Meneeon.

In a rather rare yet adorable incident, a wild elephant recognised the veterinary who had treated him 12 years ago. The 31-year-old mammal remembered his vet Dr Pattarapol Maneeon. Apparently, he also reached out to the human with his trunk after seeking his attention by making a distinct sound. The incident took place in Thailand.
