  •  Thanks for this diary. I've heard many stories (0+ / 0-)

    of animals helping humans.  Dolphins guiding boaters away from tsunamis or supporting humans in the water and leading helpers in boats to them.

    I remember reading many years ago about a boy of 10 who wandered away from camp in the mountains in Colorado.  It was a cold night, but he survived because female elk lay beside him and kept him warm.  Rescuers saw the imprints of their bodies and fur that was shed and knew the type of animal from the boy's description.

    I agree, empathy is the word I would use, too.

    Thank you!
