Heartbroken Bird Can’t Accept That Her Friend Is Really Gone

The smallest of creatures can cast the biggest of shadows when it finally comes time to say goodbye.
A saddening video clip has been making the rounds on social media in recent days showing a little bird’s heartbreaking reaction to her friend’s death. As the animals’ owner prepares to lay the deceased pet to rest, his companion lingers close by, nudging at his body as if cajole him back to life — unable, it seems, to accept that he is truly gone.
