Spotted hyenas and jackals had opened up the car.cass at the national park before a pack of lions descended onto the body.

The herd of elephants later found the remains and refused to leave the body.

The animals can also be seen flapping their ears in the footage posted by Tracking The Wild in an attempt to cool down in the heat.

Researchers have found that elephants, like humans, gri.eve for the de.ad by frequently visiting their gra.ves, ‘kissing’ their bodies with their trunks, and rocking to and fro with gri.ef.
