Baby elephant hugs keeper: Tender scene between calf and keeper caught on camera

Baby elephant hugs keeper: Tender scene between calf and keeper caught on camera, In a world where tragic and scandalous reports and rumors trump just about every other category of online news media, a simple hug between man and beast can do much to lift one’s spirit.

Sun-gazing.com carried the April 25 photo showing a baby calf reaching in and hugging its keeper. The calf’s trunk is wrapped up and around its keeper’s arm.

At Munich’s Hellabrunn Zoo, a baby Asian elephant greeting her keeper with a ‘bear’ er, elephant hug that is, is a touching moment.

Tierpark Hellabrunn Zoo is an 89-acre zoological garden in the Bavarian capital of Munich. Founded in 1905, the zoo has only been closed two times – During Germany’s inflation crisis in the mid 20s, and during the 1945 allied air raids of World War II.

Hellabrunn is among the most biologically diverse zoos in Europe, providing a home to 18,000 animals representing over 700 species and welcoming over one million visitors a year.

With photos like this one, they’re sure to get more guests, perhaps looking for a hug from the zoo’s inhabitants.
