"If only once you have seen the anguish of a young animal whose mother has died, you would know their distress and grief to be real and would never again doubt that animals have feelings that hurt every bit as much as yours and mine. Believe me when I tell you that 'Elephants cry too.'
This thought once moved me so much that I wrote a children's story called 'Elephants CryToo' which the film actress and friend Virginia Mackenna praised. The story is available in e-book format from www.smashwords.com for the nominal price of $1.60 or can be purchased in a hard copy book containing four animal stories entitled, 'Bes' from www.lulu.com or amazon.com for the price of £6.99.
