All Creatures Great and Small
As Steven Scott, Knoxville ’81, walked across the gravel, his feet crunched at every step.
“Who’s making more noise? Me or her?” he says, smiling while gesturing with his thumb over his shoulder at the African elephant, Flora, who strode across the gravel in her enclosure to grab the pear tree branch just thrown over the fence. She made as much noise as the cat that was simultaneously sneaking around the elephant barn.
Since Scott, known as “Doc,” began tending to his clients at The Elephant Sanctuary, he’s learned more than just how silently they can move.
