Heartbroken Goat Refuses to Eat for 6 Days, Then Rescuers Discover Why He’s So Depressed

92

Life is better with friends, and when those we love and care about are no longer around, many of us tend to feel sad and even depressed. And if the story in the video below is any indication of the truth, this is something that applies to animals as well, not just humans.
When Mr. G arrived at Animal Place’s Rescue Ranch in Grass Valley, California, he was in a pretty bad place. Although he was visibly weakened, the goat refused to eat, and as much as caretakers tried to cheer him up, they were unsuccessful.
From a medical standpoint, there was nothing wrong with Mr. G, so no one could figure out what was the reason the goat was feeling down. While they were trying to get to the bottom of things, one of the caretakers found out that Mr. G had been separated from his friend of over ten years, a burro named Jellybean.
Luckily, it was possible for those at the animal rescue center to bring the two together again, and once that happened, the goat’s condition improved almost immediately. As it turned out, Mr. G just missed his best friend. See him and his friend together by watching the video below:
