Anand Mahindra tweeted a heartbreaking video of a dying chimpanzee’s last moments with its caretaker.

In the short clip, the chimpanzee refuses to eat or drink but on recognizing Professor Jan van Hooff who is also the caretaker, she gives him a big smile.

The business tycoon shared the video on Twitter and wrote, “Damn. Made me tear up. Clearly, we’ve evolved in the wrong direction.”

The video was originally shot in 2016. It features Mama, a 59-years old Chimpanzee of the famous chimpanzee colony from the Royal Burgers Zoo in Arnhem, the Netherlands.

The moment was recorded when Hooff paid a visit to her after being told about the chimpanzee’s condition in April 2016. After being tweeted by Anand Mahindra, the video resurfaced on social media and has garnered over 90k views since then.

Below is how the internet reacted.
