CRASH Japan - Love On Japan 2011 - Christian Relief Assistance Support & Hope. Do Animals Grieve? : 13.7: Cosmos And Culture. Christopher Furlong/Getty Images I'm on research leave from my college this year in order to write a book that explores one central question: Do non-human animals grieve?

Do Animals Grieve? : 13.7: Cosmos And Culture

My answer is yes, they do. It's refreshing to answer a scholarly question without equivocation. Most often, I can't do that. When anthropologists reconstruct how prehistoric peoples lived based on their material artifacts, or theorize about how monkeys and apes think about the world based on their behavior, disclaimers of what we can't know often crowd out solid answers. But from a combination of observation, evolutionary logic, reading the peer-reviewed science literature, and talking to insightful animal people, I'm convinced that animals may feel deep grief when another animal dies.

Right now, for example, I'm under way with a critical assessment of grief in domestic cats. And here my professional and personal lives collide, because my husband and I rescue, care for and spay/neuter homeless cats. BAN Travelling Dolphin Circuses.
