This is probably the saddest story you will read today. It is a fact that animals feel same emotions as humans do. In a heart-rending incident, a baby monkey wept helplessly in the middle of the road when his mother was run over by a speeding vehicle.
The mother was trying to cross the road and got hit by a car. The baby monkey came running to her, and he hugged her and tried to wake her up. He even kept his ears on her chest to check her heartbeat.
Seeing the baby monkey wailing as he hugged his dead mother, the bystanders were left in tears as well. They were deeply moved by this incident. K Saravanan, who witnessed this scene, said,
Losing a loved one will be painful for not just human beings. Animals too mourn. We saw the young monkey weeping over the carcass of its mother.
Eventually, a police personnel arrived, and he managed to keep the baby monkey away from the carcass. Villagers carried the carcass to a burial ground and performed the final rites.
G Sathyanarayanan, a villager, said,
The baby monkey jumped from one tree to another tree and followed us when we carried the carcass.
The incident took place at Elanthur on the Tamil Nadu-Karnataka National highway on Friday.
Just like humans, all animals feel emotions. Plus, violence against animals is a heinous crime. Be a voice for those who do not have one.
