Sometimes nature is heartbreaking.
A squirrel was run over and killed by a vehicle. Its loyal friend keeps scavenger crows from attacking its corpse. This just makes me choke up a little bit.
If the video above doesn’t work, here’s a link to its page on Youtube.
There are some links to more of the squirrel’s protective nature in this post about a mother squirrel protecting her baby from a dog.

Just because I entitled this post “Elephant and Dog Create Friendship Bond” during my pseudo-presidential week, don’t fall into the trap of believing that this post is about Republican elephants and Blue dog Democrats crossing the aisle and singing Kumbaya.
Instead its about an actual pachyderm/canine friendship at The Elephant Sanctuary in Hohenwald, Tennessee.
Previously here at the Palace, we’ve linked to a 24-hour penguin camera at the Tennessee Aquarium
On The Elephant Sanctuary‘s Web site, they have an elephant camera that provides live footage of a field where the elephants roam.
