Hundreds of people joined rescue elephants in the streets as they headed to their new home.
Two elephants – SomBoon, a pregnant 30-year-old elephant, and Sri Nuan, a 50-year-old elephant were rescued.
The rescue elephants were ready to move to their new home at the Samui Elephant Haven in Thailand.
But, it was too difficult to move such massive animals.
So, the rescuers decided to walk the animals along the 12-mile and they embarked on a 10-hour journey.
Dozens of villagers and tourists joined the rescuers to walk the elephants to their new home.
Some of the food vendors offered fruits and water to the elephants.
According to GoodNewsNetwork, Mango Yordbear, a UK traveler, said: “It was so exciting, I got goosebumps all over – the hairs just stood up.
It was an electric feeling.It was so beautiful. ”
The rescue elephants arrived at the sanctuary after walking for 10 hours.
Thanks to the hundreds of strangers who helped walk the animals to their new home.
A video of the journey was shared online which went viral and received positive comments from the users.
