A video of a pitbull watching the original Lion King movie is warming the hearts of millions of people as he reacts – just as we would – to seeing Mufasa die.


Global – We can all remember that first time we watched as Mufasa fell to his death at the paws of Scar. It was heartbreaking to witness and even worse, enduring the struggle of Simba trying to wake him.

Many believe that animals are capable of feeling emotions too. We couldn’t agree more and have seen many instances where animals have shown compassion and understanding of human emotions. Not only do animals sense our emotional state and offer snuggles and comfort, but they also experience their own feelings too.

This has been proven by a viral video of a pitbull watching the Lion King. In the clip, that has now been viewed over a quarter of a million times, the pup can be seen visibly upset by the movie.

The part of the movie the pup was filmed watching, was the moment Mufasa died. Her eyes were locked on the screen, and it was as if she understood exactly what she was seeing.

Watching the emotional pup watch the emotional clip made us pretty emotional. Now we need a dog to come snuggle and comfort.
