Saw this today on the news;

Bambi Protects Mother Goose

BUFFALO, NY - It's a scene right out of a Disney movie, mother goose has lost her lifelong mate and is now left alone to create and tend to her nest. She spends the day sheltering her eggs from the cold spring air inside an empty cemetery urn she has chosen as home.

The loss of her male partner and guardian now makes her vulnerable to any would-be predators that choose to approach the nest. But, in an unlikely twist of fate, an adult deer has befriended the mother goose, taking over the role of protector.

This animal arrangement is highly unusual, since there's no known way that a deer and goose can communicate. Yet somehow the deer has come to understand the need of the nesting mother.

The deer's been doing this now for about a week, it takes it's job pretty seriously too, chasing away anyone who tries to get near the goose.

I will be glad when the human brain finally evolves up to the standard of some of these animal brains...We will be a lot better off.....Maybe we will then not try and kill each other off...

Devolving, the human spirit is; steadily losing its connection to nature and creator, and so the animals begin to precede us in the simplest things of which we're lacking, in this case: love for our neighbours, no matter how different they are.

Thanks for the post OP.

We view humankind as an evolution, as an improvement over other animals. This video shows that empathy transcends species. We humans have just closed ourselves off to the idea of being one with nature, of being a part of a whole that is the sum of this world. We seclude ourselves with technology, when all we have ever needed is all around us and always has been.

It's just one of many examples of this sort of empathy animals can display for one another, even if they aren't of the same species; like when this lioness adopted a stray calf and treated it like it's own cub;
