Buckley writes of how Tina quickly formed a “family” with other elephant survivors of captivity, adopting as her sisters three elephants: Tara, Winkie and Sissy. Born in captivity and separated as a toddler to serve as a zoo attraction, Tina attached herself to her new “sisters” and, judging from Buckley’s account of her last moments, earned as well the affection and concern of the three other elephants.
“We must fight against the spirit of unconscious cruelty with which we treat the animals. Animals suffer as much as we do. True humanity does not allow us to impose such sufferings on them. It is our duty to make the whole world recognize it. Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living things, humanity will not find peace.”
¯ Albert Schweitzer
