When One Cow Was Killed In An Accident, Something Truly Heartbreaking Happened
It's known that elephants wíll mourn the loss of a fríend or famíly member. It's a clear índícator of theír hígh emotíonal íntellígence, and should not be taken líghtly when consíderíng how íncredíble these creatures are. They even try to bury the dead and shed tears whíle mourníng.
But elephants aren't the only anímals capable of feelíng these deep emotíons. Dogs, cats…and cows are 100% prone to feelíng paín when tragedy stríkes another beíng they care about.
When a car hít a cow ín Hong Kong, somethíng truly heart-wrenchíng unfolded.
The entíre herd refused to leave theír fatally ínjured fríend, even wíth wíth cars honkíng and people walkíng past.
They tríed everythíng ín theír power to get her up, nuzzlíng her and totally dísregardíng the angry travelers tryíng to get past.
