This Duck Died Trying to Save its Best Friend’s Life

Their extraordinary relationship shows us the real meaning of friendship.

In our lifetime, we will meet hundreds of people and some of them may even become our friends. Yet, there will only be a handful—or even just one—who’ll be as true and as loyal to us.

Your background or your status in life won’t matter because your best friend will accept you no matter who you are or where you came from. Whether you both are compatible in every way or the exact opposites, you can always count on that person to understand, love, and just be there for you. A true friend will stick by you through thick and thin.

It’s always inspiring to hear stories that show us the true meaning of friendship, especially if it’s as pure and unique as this pair’s relationship.

This monkey and this duck grew up together.

Despite coming from a totally different species, they bonded and simply became best friends.

But, like most friendships, theirs was tested.

The monkey was reportedly playing when it chanced upon a live wire. It got caught and started screaming in pain. Hearing the poor monkey’s desperate cries, the duck immediately came to its rescue. However, it got entangled as well.

Sadly, both loving animals died on the spot.

Although this was a heartbreaking story, the friendship they shared was indeed true. Don’t you agree? Some of us rarely meet a type of friend who’s ready to sacrifice his or her life for us. So if you do have this kind of best friend, treasure and love them as much as they value you.

The sad reality that we are facing today is the consistent decline in the bee population. Yes, this is true – and it has been that way for a long time already. Unfortunately, among the known causes of bee population decline are the loss of habitat and modern industrial farming methods.
