Weeping elephants mourn a lost baby in a funeral march like humans

Parveen Kaswan, an Indian Foreign Service forest ranger, shared a video on Friday showing Indian elephants conducting a funeral ceremony for a baby elephant in a manner similar to humans.

Kawan’s video became extremely popular as surprised social media users rushed to show their astonishment and support for the elephants.

On Twitter, a video was shared where an elephant comes out of the bushes carrying a deceased baby elephant with its trunk.

The grown-up elephant lay down and protected its body while waiting for other elephants to come. Walking in a row, more elephants arrived and encircled the baby elephant.

The initial elephant raised the baby again, with other elephants trailing behind.

The tweet received over 5,000 re-tweets and more than 12,000 likes on Twitter.

Elephants have been seen mourning their deceased, similar to how people do.
