    Animals are like humans and they do die from a broken heart like a human does it gives up specially the mistreated ones. Who would want to live be tortured and abused for the rest of their lives. Death stops all that.

    Philippine Tarsiers also have suicidal tendencies, a flash of a camera or a loud noise can make them feel stressed, they bang their heads on branches

    We have stupid people who do dumb shit which takes their life so surely it's the same with animals who make a stupid decision and end up dead...?

    Dolphins have also been observed commiting suicide The choose to breathe (unlike us who breath automatically) so they have to choose to breathe every breath they take Some have 'commited suicide' by choosing not to breathe, not to inhale any air, and to close their air hole

    Have you ever watched the dolphin drives in Taiji, Japan? Many dolphins will hold their breath and fall to the bottom after watching their young being kidnapped or from stress. It’s sad really 😞

    ‘Reacting to stress of its environment’ by jumping out of the water and going to far from the ledge that it would die sounds like attempted suicide. Lord.
