These incredible Chimpanzees are from the Cameroon Sanaga Yong Chimpanzee Rescue Centre and they are saying a special good bye to one of their family members who died of a heart attack. This amazing photo is from Butterbin's Facebook page that was shared by a Facebook friend!!
Is this haunting picture proof that chimps really DO grieve?
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.
