Rescue Behaviour. Examples Of Humans Going Out Of ..

 


RESCUE BEHAVIOUR

Examples of humans going out of their way to help both human and non-human animals, especially in times of distress are aplenty. There are numerous reasons why we choose to do so and for some, a sense of responsibility propels them given that increased human activity is greatly inconveniencing animals.

But why do animals do the same? There are several instances observed where animals put themselves at risk to ease the suffering of another. Termed as Rescue Behaviour this has been noted among a range of species from whales to elephants to wild boars to rats. If you are looking for an eye-opening commute read, here’s a report (https://go.nature.com/2ZNXpSs) that delves into this topic – the all encompassing trait that drives their response. Even though it is heartbreaking to learn what happens to trapped wild pigs and what they go through!

And we hope you will remember this story when you come across a wild pig in #Singapore!
