4 Dogs Block Traffic, Then Drivers Realize They're Protecting Body Of A Friend Hit By A Car

In Lanzhou, central China, four dogs were in the middle of the road obstructing traffic. Drivers quickly realized that they were protecting the body of another dog that had recently been hit and killed by a car. Sadly, it seemed that they were trying to make him get back up, not realizing that he was dead.

Dogs can sometimes become seriously depressed when another dog that was close to them passes away.

They may eat less and even experience a lack of energy. They may even be more likely to contract an illness. Their personality may change as a result, potentially making them more dominant.

Dogs may not be the only animals that experience feelings in this way. In a similar situation earlier this month, a group of horses behaved the same when one of their friends was struck and killed by a car.

Animals have emotions and go through the same pain that we do when we lose someone close to us.

A video of the four dogs recently went viral. It goes to show the importance animals have in our lives and the lengths that they will go through to protect their loved ones. It's bittersweet that they stayed with their friend, even though they too were at risk.

If you were in this situation, would you just drive around them as others did or would you get out and help? Ask your friends and family to see what they would also do in this situation! This is a truly heartbreaking story that touches deeply and sheds hope.
