Anyway, here is what's happening in the story. A female elephant got caught in a poacher's trap. The trap tore through her tough skin leaving her lying flat on her side. A large bull elephant who appeared to be her husband walked around her trying to pull her up not wanting to accept the fate of his companion. Whilst he walked around her he was crying because you could see streams of water running down the sides of his face. He was obviously sad at the sight of his fallen companion. This serves as proof that animals do feel pain just like we humans do. From the current reading, Travels with Gannon and Wyatt.
