The herd of elephants say goodbye to Lola the dead elephant calf at Hellabrunn Zoo on January 21, 2012 in Munich, Germany. A baby elephant who tragically died at a German zoo is brought back before her herd so they can say goodbye. Lola, a three month old elephant, died on 21st January 2012, during a CT scan ahead of an operation to fix a serious heart defect. Lola's body was brought back to the herd at Hellabrunn Zoo in Munich, on Saturday afternoon, so that her mother, Panang (22), could say her goodbyes to her in peace. Afterwards the herd gently nuzzled the lifeless body with their trunks and took their leave of her.

Anyone who says animals don't have feelings needs to shut up because they clearly do.

I lost it, the moment I saw the mother stroke the baby's lifeless body with her trunk... that was heart-wrenching. I cried all the way thru this...
