Chimps… just like Humans…

A truly amazing video. I found it by accident. A gang of chimps attacks a member of their own tribe, which is quite unusual among chimps. Generally, they attack the rival tribes.The targeted monkey is thought to have had poor social skills. Now… isn’t that happening among humans? All monkeys go with the flow and participate in the attack, all except one, which shows concern for the beaten chimp. It seems that chimps are not only capable of brutal aggression but also empathy. Or are we projecting our own characteristics on animals? This is quite interesting.

    Interesting indeed, I have witnessed many videos such as this. There nature is as our own, and our own nature is as theirs. We are one.
