Elephant Funeral

Video: Tracking the Wild, YouTube

Here is a sad but touching video of elephants mourning.  Their friend had a broken leg and was then shot in Chobe National Park in Botswana.

Elephants are a communal species, and are very empathetic.  Here they are not only mourning, however – they are also protecting the body from lions and hyenas.
