Bella & Tarra BFFS
One's a Dog. The Other's An Elephant. Inside the Interspecies Friendship That Has Moved Millions
Elephants are social creatures and most of the 17 at Hohenwald have paired off. In 2002 Tarra, a former tire store mascot, was spotted asleep in the grass with new arrival Bella curled next to her massive head. Five years later, when the dog was injured, the elephant stood vigil for two weeks outside the onsite clinic. Granted a visit, Tarra "touched her so gently with her trunk that Bella immediately relaxed," says Buckley. Now healed, Bella and her big pal, already a hit in a CBS video that went viral on the Internet, may become the subjects of an animated film. Will fame cause a rift? Buckley doubts it. When last seen, "Bella was leaning on Tarra's foot, getting petted by her trunk."
