Film shows that Chimps behave more human than many humans
"A unique, remarkable and intimate film may change the way we think about animals, and their ability to feel grief.
The newly-published film captures the solemn reactions of a group of chimpanzees who discover the dead body of a friend.
For 20 minutes, the chimpanzees quietly gather around their friend, despite offers of food to tempt them away. They gently touch and sniff his body, with chimps who were closer friends with the deceased appearing to be the most upset."
