“For those people who still think animals have no emotions: Watch this video!”
This emotional video shows donkeys grieving the loss of one of their own.
The deceased donkey, Bram, had to be euthanized after failing to regain his health while staying at the Ezelshoeve Foundation, a donkey sanctuary in the Netherlands.
In the video, posted to YouTube in February, the surviving donkeys are seen gathering around Bram’s deceased body and are heard making distressed noises.
The founders of the sanctuary said the noises made by the donkeys were different than their usual cries and were a sign the donkeys were in mourning.
One of the donkeys also tried to tug at Bram to wake him up.
