Sharing is caring!

While there are many qualities that humans and animals share, it is only recently that we have seen how similarly we all treat death.  We have seen animals howl or stand guard over their deceased mates and offspring, but rarely have we seen something of this nature:  a dog in Iraq tenderly burying a dead puppy.  It is unknown whether the puppy belonged to the dog, or if it just came across it in passing, but what is known is certain:  humans are not alone in our impulse to bury the dead.
