Do you think animals are without feelings? If so, grab a tissue and prepare to have your mind changed.
The heartbreaking video below of a mother sea lion mourning her dead pup proves that humans aren’t the only ones to experience grief and loss. The footage was captured in San Diego, California, by wildlife campaigner Andrea Else Hahn, who believes that the dead pup was born prematurely before she stumbled onto the scene.
Hahn first spotted the grieving mom one day in March of this year, and when she returned to the location the next day, she was surprised to see that the sea lion still hadn’t left her baby’s side.
The mother’s grief is palpable as she howls, cries tears, and thrashes about in the sand next to her dead pup. This distressing scene speaks volumes about animals and their emotions.
Unfortunately, it comes somewhat naturally for most of us to judge other people without really knowing them. We’re all a product of our pasts, shaped by our upbringing and experiences. But it’s important to look through all of that and remember that judging someone by their outward appearance truly is like only reading the cover of a book. And maybe the inside flap at best. Here’s a guy’s personal post that drives that point home.
So, there you have it. Don’t make hurtful assumptions about other people, especially those that you are already assuming want to kill you. Because that makes no sense. Share this guy’s experience with others. Spread the no-judging message.
