This footage shows what appears to be elephants attending a ‘funeral’ for one of their kind in South Africa

The video, filmed at Kruger National Park, shows the elephants gathering around the carcass of a dead adult elephant and appearing to mourn its passing.

Although the video was filmed several years ago it has only recently emerged online.

The filmer later wrote:

“This was hard to take in but was so interesting all those years ago when I filmed it.

“Nature is so complex and interesting – I still cannot believe what I have seen over the years.”
