Watch These Monkeys Mourn a Robot Baby Monkey

After the internet (and researchers) were astounded by video clips of a snow monkey attempting to fuck a deer, the BBC has captured some equally bizarre footage of primates doing things not often seen by humans.

For the first episode of Spy in the Wild, a documentary series that uses lifelike, animatronic animals with cameras hidden inside to document behind the scenes behavior of wild animals, langur monkeys in India take in a robot baby, thinking it’s one of their own.

Everyone seems happy and it’s all good, until the advance stuffed animal is dropped from a tree and then lies motionless on the ground. The monkeys then surround it and appear to mourn the faux baby, turning the joyous little troop into a sad grieving bunch and all because humans mercilessly fooled them for the sake of entertainment. This is just heartbreaking.

RIP Baby Robot Monkey.
