At The Elephant Sanctuary near Nashville, Tenn., formerly abused or neglected elephants now roam a 2,700-acre private reserve. In this space they receive constant attention to all their physical, emotional and medical needs, but the small staff that cares for the herd faces risks every day because some of these animals have killed their former keepers. Pictured here are Debbie, Queenie, Lottie and Minnie. (The Elephant Sanctuary)
