  1. So beautiful. Reminds me of a sentimental movie “Water for Elephants.” A newly purchased elephant named Rosie to perform at a circus. Handlers couldn’t train her so they beat her but one Polish guy, Jacob noticed Rosie understanding Polish commands. After that the circus enjoyed a period of success. No more beatings.
