Picture of the day: grieving chimpanzees

Wednesday, October 28, 2009

This extraordinary photo taken by Monica Szczupider at the Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue Centre in eastern Cameroon shows a family of grief-stricken chimpanzees mourning the death of a fellow ape named Dorothy.
Is this haunting picture proof that chimps really DO grieve?

Ofcourse they grieve. We dont really want to accept it unless some research group comes up with a conclusion after years of 'studies'.

All animals emote, some more visible than others like apes and elephants.
