It is known that elephants are one of closest creatures to humans in feelings! The video below, that took place near the Kalawewa reserve in Sri Lanka, shows a herd of elephants gathering to pay last respect to their dеаd leader!
You can see in the video below some elephants trying to cuddle their leader, that was murdered by a rival, with their trunks! The witnesses claimed that they saw almost 300 elephants gathering to say goodbye to the dеаd one!
A study from Oxford University in 2006 found that elephants, unlikе humans, mourn over the dеаth of their family or friends! They also try to help the dying and siсk ones hoping they can be back healthy! How heartbreaking! Watch the video below.
