When this female named Dorothy  died of heart failure, all the  chimpanzee family came out of  the forest to say good bye..... the  most stunning reaction was a  recurring, almost tangible silence,  reported staff at Cameroon’s  Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue  Centre. If you know chimpanzees,  then you know that they are not  usually silent beings. I think it’s  beautiful how many of the chimps  are touching each others’  shoulders.

Is this haunting picture proof that chimps really DO grieve?
