If any of you have ever lived on a farm you will never forget the cries of the cow whose calf was taken away.
I experienced the same with my sheep. One ran the fence line -the direction the baby went- and cried all night. And she gave me this sad accusing look. Actually that only happened to the one.- I had taken him to have him dehorned- brought him back - happy ending. The experience however was very memorable.
Also if baby wanders off and gets lost there is much running around and crying from both of them.
When the baby is older they don't seem to care as much.

Very striking. But how could anyone imagine that animals felt no emotions ? They're alive, therefore they feel things.
I mean, even my cat shows me he is sad when I leave my house. And cats are known to feel death : when another cat they know, or even another animal they're used to will die, they sit by him for a little while. I believe it is a form of grief (or cruelty, after all they're cats !:lol
That was amazing!

I would have to disagree. Chimps are not the only one that feels feelings besides humans. You should google elephants mourn their dead, lion remembers man, or check out www.youtube.com... for the family of water buffalo come to the aid of their baby, or google dog saves dog on freeway.
It was said that the living creatures of earth are exponentially growing the same as we are. they are growing intellectually and spiritually. So let us remember that life is something great so give MUCH thanks and respect to that animal that gave you its flesh for you to eat! =D

I have heard many stories about dogs (and other animals, but mainly dogs) grieving literally to death after their human "owners" died. Not because they weren't properly cared for but because they were too heartbroken to live.
How many stories about humans grieving to death do you hear....?
I think that says it all.
Well I for one know what its like to grieve the loss of a child to the point you would give anything thing for death to overtake you, so I know if it were possible to die from grief I would have been dead already.
