Elephants are believed to have some striking similarities to humans. And science says that just like humans, elephants also mourn their dead.

A heartbreaking video showing a herd of elephants weeping and mourning the death of a baby elephant is going viral on social media.  

The video which was first shared on Twitter by Parveen Kaswan, left people heartbroken and in tears.

While the cause of the baby elephant's death is unknown, this video has surely shed some light on the sensitive and emotional behaviour of elephants.
