Grief-stricken wild MONKEY gives human friend who fed him every day a kiss as he tries to revive him during his funeral

  • 2 years ago
Before his death, Peetambaram Rajan, 56, fed the wild grey langur every day with fruit and biscuits at his forest-side home in Batticaloa, Sri Lanka. And when mourners brought the monkey to Rajan's funeral (pictured), they were amazed at how strong the bond had become. As the langur perched on the edge of Rajan's open coffin, it gently cupped his chin as if trying to work out why his friend is so still. Video footage recorded by a mourner at the head of the coffin shows the monkey leaning in to try to hug his human benefactor.
