+ - Elephant Families Experience Symptoms Similar To PTSD->

Submitted by Philip Ross
Philip Ross (3389483) writes "Humans aren’t the only social beings haunted by traumatic events. According to a new study on elephant behavior, elephants that survived a cull — the systematic killing of older members of an elephant family to control elephant populations in African nature reserves — were still affected by the events decades later. Researchers found that the elephants’ “social understanding” were impaired, particularly when it came to appropriately responding to other elephants’ calls."
