I Never Thought A Squirrel Would Do This For His Dead Friend
When we think of a loyal animal, we almost ubiquitously think of dogs, or at least some sort of domestic animal. It seems that wild animals have just as much loyalty and faithfulness. When this squirrel lost his squirrel friend, crows descended on the body. Crows are scavengers of the animal kingdom, surviving by picking off plants, insects and dead or weakened, small animals. So, while it's perfectly natural for these crows to see the fallen squirrel as dinner, its squirrel friend will have none of it. Squirrels are known for an admirable fighting streak and a fierce tenacity. Although these crows are twice his size and he's clearly outnumbered, you have to cheer for this little guy's big heart as he protects the body of his friend.
