Not Your Ordinary Farm in Williston
Patricia Zerbini owns Two Tails Ranch, this is where Fraser works seven days a week.
"Just being able to interact with them is what makes me wake up every morning, said Fraser. "Knowing I get to come out here and take care of them."
"I think a lot of people truly don't understand how drastic their survival is at this point," said Zerbini.
Zerbini says the population of Asian elephants is dropping and the amount of land lost to urbanization in their country is massive.
"I think people really need to start looking to the future which would be captive breeding and preservation programs outside of their countries," Zerbini said.
"They see me and they realize 'oh this is my guy.' You do get a strong bond with those animals, especially because they are such a higher intelligence animal and they recognize you as their care taker," Fraser said.
