The way this elephant carrying his calf body will break your heart

Grieving elephants have been seen conveying the body of a dead calf over a street, in scenes reminiscent of a ‘funeral procession’.

The awful video showing an Indian elephant walk out of the undergrowth holding the baby’s lifeless body, before being followed by at least eight others. It was uploaded to Twitter by Indian Foreign Service forest ranger Parveen Kaswan.

The footage shows an Indian elephant, potentially the calf’s mom, remaining along the edge of the road before laying down the motionless carcass. She is joined by eight others, including three calves, who walk the undergrowth behind her. The family then moves off, with the adult elephant still carrying the calf’s body.

Posting the video online, Mr Kaswan tweeted:

This will move you !! Funeral procession of the weeping elephants carrying dead body of the child elephant. The family just don’t want to leave the baby.
