Elderly Animals by Isa Leshko (15 photos)

TL;DR Skip to the video at the end.

Photographer Isa Leshko travelled to sanctuaries across San Antonio, Texas and in Kendalia in 2011 to photograph animals who were elderly or at the end stage of their lives. Some of these animals were reared on factory farms before they were places into sanctuaries while others were well cared for since an early age. Most of these animals still have dignity and seem youthful despite their advanced ages but, of course, you’ll see a frail, aged look on few. [via pdnonline]
