Goodbye, my dear friend: Heart-breaking moment elephant bids farewell to fallen companion is captured by amateur photographer


This heart-wrenching image has captured the incredibly rare moment a mourning elephant says goodbye to her fallen friend.  John Chaney, 63, was on a safari trip in Botswana with his wife Diane when they came across the carcass of a dead elephant surrounded by vultures and hyenas.

As their guide called park rangers to come and remove the tusks so they wouldn't fall into the hands of poachers, another elephant charged over to the body.  The female elephant scared off the animals surrounding the carcass before tenderly placing her trunk around the tusk of the dead male.

Mr Chaney revealed how the group were then brought to tears as the female elephant stood guard over the body of her friend for several hours in what appeared to be a moving vigil.


(One day, nothing that Jehovah has created or made will mourn like this wonderful creature.  This one broke my heart).

indeed a heart-wrenching scene. :crying:


   On 'Planet Earth' there is a segment showing elephants

    enroute to their former watering holes, coming upon elephant carcasses.


 they linger awhile there.

  then using their trunks,they fondle and caress the bones.

   as if mourning the loss and memory of their families and friends.


Researchers wonder if perhaps elephants can somehow understand death.

  as they seem to perform a sort of 'elephant funeral'.


stories like this touch my heart too, love Jehovah's animal creation

  thank you Lisa :flowers:

                   At that time those who fear Jehovah spoke with one another, each one with his companion,

                             and Jehovah kept paying attention and listening..." ~ Malachi 3:16
