Animal Grief - How Animals Mourn
by David Alderton
Science is now providing some remarkable insights into animal behaviour, with crocodiles, for example, emerging as devoted parents, and elephants – like whales – able to communicate with each other across long distances by ultrasound, which is inaudible to our ears. There seems little doubt that animals experience a range of emotions, just as we do; but can they grieve, too ...?
Evidence exists that, indeed, they can: in addition, David Alderton – award-winning, multi-million specialist animal author – contends that emotions – including grief – can potentially have a survival value for a species.
The authoritative, rational text is superbly supported by interesting, sensitive photographs carefully chosen to be reflective of the subject matter.
Our groundbreaking new book, Animal Grief, is available soon from the Hubble & Hattie website, priced at £9.99 (plus p+p). You can find out more here!
