Peacock Refuses To Leave "Long Time Partner" After Its Death

A video that is now going viral on the Internet shows a peacock following two men who were carrying its dead partner away. The video shows a peacock, which had lived with its partner for four years, refusing to let go of it even after its death.

When two men carried the carcass of the peacock's partner, it quietly followed them to the funeral. Indian Forest Service Officer Parveen Kaswan, who shared the “touching video” on his Twitter handle, said the incident happened in Rajasthan's Kuchera town. “The peacock doesn't want to leave the long time partner after his death.

Touching video. Via WA,” said Mr Kaswan, explaining that he received the clip over WhatsApp.

In another tweet, he added that the peacocks had lived together for four years, quoting from a Dainik Bhaskar news article.

The 19-second-long video has got nearly 1.26 lakh views and many found the peacock's gesture “heart touching”.

One user said the video was “touching” and showed that animals “animals have more love and affection for each other than humans”.

Another said only a bird or animal lover can fully understand the peacock's pain.

“This is what the entire nature and its being is all about. Grieving and following who is no more, be it humans or birds. The way all living beings mourn their departing partners as if leaving a void in their lives,” said a third user.

Mr Kaswan often shares videos of wildlife on his social media handle to make humans aware of how animals behave. Recently, he shared a horrifying video of a leopard jumping over the locked gate of a residential property to attack a dog. The leopard managed to catch the canine by its neck and jumped out of the boundary wall and escaped into the wild, showed the video.
