On May 23, 2016, a video uploaded to YouTube hit social media squarely in the feels. The clip in question was filmed at Prague Zoo in the Czech Republic, and its stars were a mother-and-son pair of Indian elephants. Having first opened in 1931, Prague Zoo welcomed its first elephant two years later. Now, the attraction receives more than a million visitors a year, and it was one of the guests who was on hand to shoot the footage that day.
