Do Animals Have Feelings? This Baby Elephant Cried For 5 Hours After His Mother Rejected Him

“Humans aren’t as good as we should be in our capacity to empathize with feelings and thoughts of others, be they humans or other animals on Earth.” Neil deGrasse Tyson

Tyson, in my opinion, has it right. We don’t do nearly as good of a job of empathizing with ours, animals or humans. For animals in particular, we regard them as tools for us, things for our pleasure and use. We justify it by saying that they don’t have feelings, that they don’t have thoughts, and that they don’t perceive the world with the clarity that we do.

One elephant calf challenges some of those assertions.

When Zhuangzhuang was born, he was rejected by his mother. His keepers reacted in horror as the mother nearly stamped him to death almost immediately after he was born. They thought it was an accident at first. He was removed and his wounds treated, but when he was reintroduced, the mother attacked him again.

Fortunately, after some time, the calf snapped out of it and is living a happy, healthy life these days. Good news.
