A Bottlenose Dolphin Mourns Over Dead Calf While Carrying It On Her Back

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueR.I.P.Sad SadDolphins

How terribly sad is this???

A bottlenose dolpin off of Dana Point, Ca is currently morning over her dead calf, and while she's filled with sorrow, she doesn't plan on letting go of her baby anytime soon, so she's been carrying her tot on her back for several days now.

The footage of the funeral procession was captured by Captain David Anderson while he was hosting a Whale Watching Safari, and even though it was a sad sight, Anderson kept his composure and explained that he had never seen this type of behavior.

In the clip (above), you can see the mama carrying her deceased young, and we must say, the video broke our hearts.

Elephants Mourn Their Dead Matriarch

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadScience!ElephantsWildlife

Elephants share more things in common with humans other than super memory!

These gentle giants (above) have come across the bones of their matriarch and scientists believe elephants mourn and grieve and have a concept of death.

Their routine is very ritualistic
