A heart wrenching scene was witnessed near Elanthoor on the Tamil Nadu-Karnataka National highway when a speeding car knocked down a monkey, while she was crossing the road. The mother monkey succumbed to her injuries on the spot after she was hit by a speeding vehicle.
The baby monkey rushed to the spot and tried to wake her up. A passerby filmed the heart breaking video of him sobbing and crying. The baby monkey clings to her dead mother and sobs for a long time as the passerby look at it with sadness. Emotions are dominant in animal species higher in the hierarchy of intelligence. Similarly to humans, even monkeys feel the sadness of losing a beloved one to ‘death’. Humans who are now quite significant on Earth must show compassion to other species
