Elephants weep as they carry dead baby in funeral procession
A procession of elephants can be seen carrying the lifeless body of a member of the herd, in scenes reminiscent of human mourning ceremonies. A heart-rending video of elephants staging a funeral for one of their young has gone viral, sparking an outpouring of emotion on social media. Walking in a line-not dissimilar to a funeral procession-both young and mature elephants gather around the carcass. The stunning footage was posted to Twitter by IFS officer Parveen Kaswan on Friday. One Mohan Alembath said it was a very touching and emotionally disturbing video.
