    DeathHand Let It All Bleed Out

    This story and the photos have touched the hearts of millions since the story hit the internet last week.

    At first came the news from a German zoo that one of their female gorillas, Dian, had given birth to twins - something rare for gorillas.

    But two days later one of the baby twins was dead.

    Frankfurt Zoo, Frankfurt, Germany, September 15 to 17, 2015.

    Set 1.

    The baby female twin dies, but it's mother still tries to get it to breast feed. Sometimes she shakes it. But she never lets go of it.

    Holding the dead baby in one hand, Dian paces the enclosure of the zoo, and still won't let the lifeless baby gorilla go. Mother gorillas are known to react in this manner when there young die, even to the point of the keeping the dead baby as it starts decomposing.

    Zoo officials waited until Dian gave up and "released" the dead twin before they felt comfortable with taking it away for an autopsy and not causing further stress for Dian.

    The other twin has thus far survived and Dian seems to be directing her attention to the this one now that she's released the one that she couldn't revive.

    Awww, that's truly heartbreaking, and they say animals have no souls. It's them we should be trying to emulate, not the other way round. Excellent, touching post DH.

    RIP Little One.
