When we have an animal in our life, we begin to realize just how much emotion they can show. Most people are aware of an animal’s ability to show love and compassion, but there is a wide range of other emotions they are capable of as well.
The emotions an animal can show became painfully aware to individuals on Safari. Parveen Kaswan was there with a group, standing along an empty road and watching as something unfolded in front of them.
The people standing along the road were blocking it but they were doing it for a very good reason. They were helping a herd of elephants to cross the road safely.
There was one elephant in particular, however, that really took them by surprise as it approached the road. As Kaswan watched the elephant approach, he suddenly realized that she was carrying the dead body of a child elephant.
The elephant walked across the road and set the little one down on the opposite edge. Other elephants came and slowly crossed the road, pausing to look at the dead elephant as it lay on the ground.
In the video, he said that the family didn’t want to leave the baby and he referred to it as a funeral procession.
It took some time but eventually, the elephants continued going wherever it was they were going. They walked away from the road, one by one but a larger elephant picked up the younger with his trunk and carries it.
