A blind elephant named Jokia is still mourning the loss of Mae Perm, her close companion of 17 years who died earlier this month at Thailand’s Elephant Nature Park (ENP), a sanctuary and rescue for elephants.  When Mae Perm first passed away, Jokia spent six hours standing over her friend’s lifeless body, “touching and nudging and leaning against” her, Lek Chailert, the founder of ENP, wrote at the time.
