Asian Elephants Console Each Other When in Distress
Asian elephants reassure other distressed elephants by touching them and “talking” to them, which suggests they are capable of empathy and reassurance, according to new research. “There is 50 years of behavioral observational research out of Africa that elephants are highly social, they have empathy and they can think about their social relationships and make specific social decisions that impact themselves and others,” said study researcher Josh Plotnik, of the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom.
