Động vật có khóc thương cho cái chết như con người?

Updated: 01 Apr, 2019 lúc March 31, 2019

Some animals such as whales, chimpanzees, dogs, ... often look quite distressed when they lose their relatives or children. So are they really sorry for human death, or is it just a normal act through the lens of human understanding?

The answer is still one of the controversial issues
There is a definition in the zoology called "animals grief" that refers to actions and feelings of mourning for dead animals in some animals. Not only that, some species also have rituals "burial" and even "visit grave" extremely interesting and solemn as human.

Do animals have emotions?
The mourning for the deceased fellow, for those who support this idea, appears in many animal species, but mostly in specific mammals, primates and birds. They explain in this species that there is a link between a particular species or a connection with other animals. Zoologists have noticed a change in chimpanzee activity when one of their chicks "leaves", other chimpanzees fasting for a few days they are silent and staring. into the body of the ill-fated animal, and some activities such as trying to wake up this child wake up also appear. This is purely a human thing, today we do not do this often, but our ancestors have done so.
love for the master's death.
The same is true for humans who have the time of mourning for animals depending on their behavior and as well as their relationship with the dead animal, the time will be longer if the dead animal is a mate or As their children, many women cried for months even years for losing their children. Some objections have raised the question of whether they know that their fellow humans will not be able to return to life once they die, the answer is yes, animals know and understand the permanence of death. There was an anecdote in a forest that said monkeys were afraid of a poisonous snake, until the monkeys used their tails to kill it, other monkeys took turns taking the snake's body around their neck to play, this shows that monkeys understand and are aware that death is eternal, there will be no cases of animals that die back to life. But there is not any knowledge that can help us conclude that primates are aware that one day they will have to leave.

Birds are also sorry!
Birds are also one of the species that show mourning for their mates, birds will often have mate to mate, if one of the birds dies, the other will tend to fast until death because of them. have a long association. However, for animals they will not be buried for their dead species, instead they will throw things on that body to cover up to avoid predators and scavengers that will come, they know that. Grave excavation is one of the characteristic signs of humans (according to research on Homo naledi).

Although still controversial, one of the famous statements about this issue is: "You will not be able to see if you do not look!" If we look closely, there are many proofs of sympathy. Animal contact is real, in history there have been many touching stories about the compassion, affection of animals for fellow humans or even other animals that they have a connection with. Here are the cases you take a look at and draw your own conclusions to see if the animals are sorry for death like humans.

1. Inseparable
Gana, a mother gorilla of the Munster Zoo, did not accept her son's death, Claudio. As the days went by, she carried Claudio on her back to walk around, and was ready to fight the zoo staff trying to get Claudio out before the rotten corpse. Researchers believe this is a very special case for mother gorillas when they lose children. In fact, there have been cases where many mothers did not accept the death of their children, even preserving the body left in the house for weeks.

2. Cremation
Assassin whales are also one of the cases that are evident. When a companion or their child dies, the mother will try to keep their body on the muzzle and swim until the body touches the land, and similarly, when one dies, the ones in the flock will also protect the body back to the mainland.

3. Look after the deaths
Elephant species have a great memory, they have funeral rites for very special dead children. When there is one child lying down, all the elephants in the pack even gather to look at the last time and say goodbye. The dead elephants often gather in one place as a graveyard and sometimes the living beings will come by and touch the skeletons with their taps, a very human act. 

4. Stroke to comfort
In baboons, the researchers found an increase in their stress hormones in the herd when a child left. They often sit together to caress each other's hair as a mechanism to make it more comfortable to reduce these hormones.

5. Gather together to say goodbye
Crows also have a ritual, they gather together around the lost animal's body. They also tend to stop eating for a while. Birds are highly influential species of the same species, especially in songbirds, swans or geese, when companions leave, they tend to fast to death.

6. Fish?
Fish often exhibit abnormal behavior when there is one in the dead flock (or in the lake), scientists say that for the fish in the lake that is about to die, they will produce a lot of hormones that stress water and affecting other fish. But there are some species of fish that live in pairs, so it is understandable for the fish to leave the fish far away

7. Cases of different species
Another famous case is Hachiko's dog, for 10 years after the death owner has repeatedly arrived at the platform where he should have returned to wait for him. Even this train station in Shibuya has a statue of a dog Hachiko, faithfully waiting for the owner to return after 10 years until his death. 

Another very special and interesting case is at the Berlin Zoo, the cat Muschi suddenly becomes a couple with Mauschen and is inseparable, until the bear dies, the cat stays in the cage Bear at Berlin Zoo.

The destruction of nature and indiscriminate hunting is one of the serious problems that bring countless animals into the list of red lists even disappearing from the planet, and there are also brutal animal violence. All of this in order to remind us that we need to change the way we look at and treat animals, it has a great moral meaning.
